  • This was a highlight of our trip to Ireland. We took in all three of the guided walks which are included in the admission price. From the prehistoric to the Viking era the three tours covered some of the most interesting aspects of Irish history. There was also a falconry exhibit which was really cool. We saw the feeding of owls and falcons and even had the opportunity to hold one. There was also a small playground for kids. Well worth the admission!
  • Interesting walks and interactive displays. Great way to spend an afternoon. Kids loved exploring. Visitors center, playgrounds and cafe could do with some modernisation. Staff all fantastic. Food and coffees were lovely.
