  • Irish National Heritage Park is so nice . I’m going there on 15/02/18 with my classmates to learn some history. Perfect Location  more »
  • I was really exciting. I thought starting 'God where drags to me my mother now again'. But it was really great, we had a great guide named Hugh, who was so funny. It was really interesting and a great starting point for our further journey through Ireland.

  • Great day out for all ages..amazing staff so helpful and kind willing to go out of their way for you which made me and my kid feel so special. Interesting for all ages and interactive guide device. Highly recommended!
  • Great day out - you can either join the tour or have the speakers and walk around at your own pace. The park is quite big so be prepared for a lot of walking around and up and down the hills. You can enter houses and see what the inside used to look like and there are some interactive facilities around the area. You do meet actors on the way as well 😁 at the end (or to start off with) there is the restaurant and the gift shop. Car park is free.
  • Really enjoyed my visit to the Heritage park Ferrycarrig Wexford. Spent two lovely hours wondering through the Ages in wonderful forest, pathways and wet land. Finished with a lovely bowl of soup in the very friendly restaurant . Well done great experience.
  • Absolutely fantastic experience here! Our guide, Alan, was exceptionally informative with a wicked sense of humour, which made it that much more enjoyable. Sadly, I was just in Ireland for a brief visit but if I had more time I would definitely go back again in a heartbeat. My fiancé, born and raised not too far from the park remembers visiting the park on a school trip and he couldn’t believe how much more he enjoyed it as an adult! AWESOME!
  • We had a great day despite the weather not being great. I have only put 3 stars due to the park being lovely, there was alot of repairs being carried out on the park and I find it has gone down hill since last we visited it just needs a bit of tlc to get it back to what it was...thanks
