Irish National Heritage Park, County Wexford

The Irish National Heritage Center is located just outside Wexford. If you want a good history lesson on the Ireland, especially ancient to medieval times, this is for you. Set on numerous acres, you may walk through with a self guided tour or go with the tour guide. Plan on a couple of hours for the tour, but it is worth it! I would also take advantage of the tour guide. We had an archeology Master’s student … He did a great job!

While all of the areas are replicas, it does provide a small glimpse into how people lived during different eras. There are about 12-15 different ‘sites’ … Here are just a few below.


Dolmen or Portal Tomb

Early Christianity – A church at a monastery
