This is a very good attraction, there is lots to do especially for children including panning for gold pieces, our kids enjoyed it and wanted to go back
We really enjoyed visiting the centre, allow at least an hour for your visit, worth taking binoculars with you for the views over the river. The exhibits are very well constructed. The "dig" centre was being used by a group of local school students and they were getting totally 'stuck in'!
This review is about the restaurant only, not the park. I eat there quite a bit with my mother when I visit her. The lunch menu is good and traditional and good value. Yesterday for example I had lovely roast lamb with three vegetables and potatoes. My mother had baked salmon. Both were €10.50 each which is good value for... More
My husband, sister, brother-in-law, and I visited the Irish National Heritage Park on 10/21/13. After driving from Dublin and stopping at Glendalough, we got there about an hour before they closed. Since it was near closing, raining, and it was during the off-season, they did not have any actors in any of the sites. We listened to the audio guide,... More

A fantastic day out with kids (or without). Lovely park to walk through, lots to learn on the way and a real change from the usual noisy hyper kids attractions! Restaurant was nice too. Definitely recommend this to anybody visiting the Wexfrod area!
This park and the guided tour were a well done overview of the early history of Ireland with reproductions of stone age, iron age and medieval villages. REally made it easy to visualize the lives of earlier ages.
I visited the park with a couple of friends. Found the staff very helpful. We got the audio guide which was very informative even without a guide. It is really well put together, I was very impressed. If you are looking for a interesting history lesson and a bit of the outdoors, this is the place for you! Great for... More
The park offers modern reconstructions of buildings covering the period from 8,500 years ago up to the Viking era. The exhibits form a time trail, which can be followed using an audio commentary or with a human guide recommended). The trail was very good and being able to enter the buildings was informative. Children are well catered for with hands... More
What a great park! The grounds are beautiful, the exhibits are informative and easy to learn from even with toddlers to chase about, and the activities for the kids were particularly innovative. I went there with my husband and two kids, ages 4 and 1. The 4 year old was old enough to participate in all of the activities, and... More
