Yes. We offer free guided tours that leave at regular intervals from the Visitor Centre. Alternatively, if you wish to explore at your own pace, we can offer you an audio tour to take with you (a small charge applies).
There are two Audio Visuals presentations – one in the Visitor Centre called Tuan’s Journey, it is a short film produced and filmed here in the park by our in house media team telling the story of Tuan as he lives through Ireland’s turbulent history. The second at the monastic site is about Ireland’s early Christian monasteries.
You can take a self-guided tour of the Park with an audio guide available in English, Spanish, French, Irish, Italian, German and Polish.
There is a licensed restaurant and well-stocked gift shop in our Visitor Centre. Toilets and picnic tables are also available at the Visitor Centre. There are also toilets within the Park itself, near the Water Mill.
The Park is wheelchair friendly for the most part. Some trails may not be suitable for wheelchairs, but these are clearly marked. The audio tour has been specially designed with the visually impaired in mind.
The Irish National Heritage Park has mobility scooters available to hire during your visit. Please note that a small rental fee will apply for use of the scooters.
