Where Irish history comes to life with fun, educational tours and family activities.

Unique day out among Ireland’s Ancient East attractions.

Journey through history

The Irish National Heritage Park is one of the best Ireland’s Ancient East attractions and a fantastic place for a family day out. There is just so much going on here all year round! We offer an immersive Irish history experience for all the family, with over 40 acres of natural woodland, 16 reconstructions of historic sites, and a live archaeological dig where the first Norman castle was built in Ireland.

Explore at your own pace or with a costumed guide to bring the sights, sounds and stories of the past to life. We have three special themed heritage tours – Pre-Historic Ireland, Early Christian Ireland and the Age of Invasion – with each bringing you on a different journey through Irish history.

Try a fun activity

There are loads of activities to keep you busy during your visit to the Park, we will give you all the details of what is available when you arrive, for our younger guests we have a series of fun trials – keep a look out for the ‘Have a Go’ signs!

While we would normally have additional experiences such as archery, axe throwing or Hawk walks on offer during the Summer, we have postponed them for the moment in line with Government advice.
