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.
Such a great place and great attention to detail. The smell of the real fires burning gives the experience a completely different feel. . Each exhibition has an activity for children. It's perfect for kids and pets are allowed too. You need time to appreciate the entire exhibition. The fairy garden is a cute idea but could do with a bit of maintenance. Overall a very good experience and it was great learning more on Irish history.
