  • I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Well worth a visit for any history enthusiasts. I teach these periods at leaving cert level and the level of detail put in to recreating these dwellings is excellent. They run guided tours for people who are unfamiliar in with this history. Well worth the price.
  • Such a great place and great attention to detail. The smell of the real fires burning gives the experience a completely different feel. . Each exhibition has an activity for children. It's perfect for kids and pets are allowed too. You need time to appreciate the entire exhibition. The fairy garden is a cute idea but could do with a bit of maintenance. Overall a very good experience and it was great learning more on Irish history.
  • I really enjoyed visiting here in October. The staff are super friendly and we got a map on arrival of the sites to visit. The Park took about 2 1/2 hours to get around but you could take as long as you like. There is a coffee shop on site it's a bit pricey but worth it or you could bring a picnic. All the sites bar the last are very accessible. If you were going to the last site it's up hill so anyone pushing a wheel chair or buggy could do it (there are lots of benches along the way) but it would be a bit of an effort. Great place to visit
  • We had a wonderful experience on our visit to the Heritage Park in July. The park is very well maintained and staff are very friendly and helpful. Lots of guided tours. I really enjoyed seeing the magnificent birds in the falconry and talking to Jim O'Connor who gave us great information on all his beautiful birds. Well worth a visit.
  • Myself and my husband went here today it was really good Iā€™m a caregiver for my husband and it was only 7 euro for the two of us and we had a beautiful walk around this must see site if your into your history and nature this is the place for you cafeteria was a little expensive but nice staff was really helpful and the toilets were spotless great play ground for kids the do tours as well as audio šŸ‘šŸ»
