Evidence of Ireland’s unique and distinctive history is all around us, in the many monument sites and features to be seen across the island. But where can you go to see how people lived? What if you could compare a Stone Age settlement with a Viking Settlement and see how they differed and what they had in common? That was the idea behind The Irish National Heritage Park.
Booking your tickets online before you arrive is convenient and it secures your place.
