The Irish National Heritage Park takes visitors on a fascinating journey through the ages. You can explore 35 acres of this amazing heritage trail, where you will come across Ringforts, Crannogs, Viking houses, and much more.
This authentic recreation of Ireland’s heritage included places of ritual, homesteads, burial modes and remains which will teach you all about Ireland’s history from 9000 years ago. The Stone Age, Bronze Age, Celtic, Early Christian Age, The Vikings and Early Normans are all brought to life at the Irish National Heritage Park.
For families, you will find interactive challenges and two playgrounds scattered across the park. One playground is suited to younger children while another is ideal for older children. Kids can also carve some rock art, weave a wattle house, move a megalithic, copy early manuscripts and pan for gold. There are family events hosted here throughout the year, making it the perfect place for a fun family day out.
