The Irish National Heritage Park


The Irish National Heritage Park is a unique Irish history heritage site located near Wexford town.

The park may be an ideal filming location for films that need a number of high quality historic locations. The park consists of recreations of historic Irish buildings and each building is set in its own beautiful environment. Covering 40 acres, the park features builings and objects from Irish pre-history, the pre-Christian era, and the Viking era.

The buildings on the site include a very impressive medieval ringfort, a Christian monastery, an authentic crannog, a Viking boatyard, a Norman castle and even a round tower. There are also smaller stand-alone recreations including a portal tomb, stone circles, ogham stones, a kiln, a fulacht fia, and a watermill.

The park also features beautiful woodland walks, which may offer filmmakers even more scene options. Parts of the park have spectacular views onto the river Slaney.
