The Irish National Heritage Park
Ferrycarrig, Co. Wexford Y35 X313
Located on the banks of the picturesque River Slaney, ‘The Irish National Heritage Park’ truly is the cornerstone of ‘Ireland’s Ancient East’. An outdoor museum depicting 9,000 years of re-created Irish History situated within natural forestry & wet woodlands. Take an unforgettable journey through Ireland’s past and experience stories, sights and sounds that shaped our country. The world you enter is an authentic recreation of Ireland’s heritage. Homesteads, places of ritual, burial modes and long forgotten remains will enlighten the casual visitor and interest the scholar.
A visit to the Irish National Heritage Park is like no other you can imagine, with 3 interesting and entertaining guided tours that run throughout the day, a trip to our Falconry Centre is also a must-do during your visit.
We are delighted to welcome dogs to the park, once they are kept on-lead at all times and their owners clean up after them! Our birds are not so welcoming, so unfortunately dogs are not permitted into the Falconry Centre. Likewise, dogs are not allowed into the café.
Located just 30 minutes from Rosslare Europort, less than 90 mins from Dublin and approximately an hour from the historic cities of Waterford & Kilkenny a visit to the Irish National Heritage Park is well within reach!
