  • I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Well worth a visit for any history enthusiasts. I teach these periods at leaving cert level and the level of detail put in to recreating these dwellings is excellent. They run guided tours for people who are unfamiliar in with this history. Well worth the price.
  • I really enjoyed visiting here in October. The staff are super friendly and we got a map on arrival of the sites to visit. The Park took about 2 1/2 hours to get around but you could take as long as you like. There is a coffee shop on site it's a bit pricey but worth it or you could bring a picnic. All the sites bar the last are very accessible. If you were going to the last site it's up hill so anyone pushing a wheel chair or buggy could do it (there are lots of benches along the way) but it would be a bit of an effort. Great place to visit
