The Irish National Heritage Park is a not-for-profit company and a recently registered Charity (RCN 20204474) that was created to tell the story of human settlement in Ireland, from the arrival of the first humans to the first wave of Norman invaders in 1169.
We tell our story through 15 reconstructed sites and a live archaeological dig at Carrig, the site of the first Norman castle built in Ireland. We have been open since 1987 and now have our own unique history that reflects how we tell our story and how that has changed radically over the years.
We see ourselves as a cultural organisation that is committed to telling a part of Ireland’s fascinating history in an educational and fun way. We would not be here without the financial contributions of all our supporters, from local residents to foreign visitors and targeted funding from the local Council.
Please consider sponsoring our work so that we can continue to grow and evolve.
