Irish National Heritage Park – is located on the banks of the picturesque River Slaney just off the N11, about 6 km north of Wexford.
This museum, or rather an outdoor open-air museum, represents 9,000 years of recreated Irish history, the cornerstone of the Irish ancient East.
You can choose an unforgettable journey through history from the Mesolithic period to the Norman invasion in 1169.
The 35 acres of the park include several reconstructed residential buildings from different periods, paths and playgrounds for children and a small river from which the children can wash out gold.
In the park you can go with a guide or walk with an audio guide yourself. There is a large free car park, a souvenir shop and a restaurant serving delicious meals. The entire park is profit oriented, but it is worth noting that all income is spent on maintaining and increasing this attraction.
Currently, in the Carrig Hill Park, archaeological excavations are in progress at the site of the first Norman fortification in Ireland.
Really great place for a family walk while learning some history along the way. The open-air museum has been operating since 1987 and is open 365 days a year and has the slogan says ‘Your adventure starts here’ …
