Great experience with Viking Jack, particularly insightful in relation to the warrior skills. Certainly felt we were living in the Viking era and we learned more about the life and times around 750AD.

This was a great family experience -our family consisted of a 9 and 10 year old, a twenty year old and 2 in their forties! It was educational, interactive and alot of fun. We made a fab viking family dressed in viking clothes, with shields and swords. Our host was brilliant, had great knowledge about the vikings, made us all feel very welcome and took every safety precaution regarding Covid 19. We had an amazing experience, learnt loads, got a prize at the end and were free then to go around the Heritage Park. Highly recommended :)

It is a great experience. I recommend it 100%. My daughter really enjoyed it. So I did. She has learned a lot of new things and she felt that she was very special as she could make a lot of questions and all of them were answered kindly in a very warm way. It is an amazing experience very interesting. He is a really nice person and made the experience very special. Thanks for such an amazing day to all the staff.

Excellent value, we had the guide all to ourselves so it was nice and personal. Got to try on Viking apparel and weaponry. Only thing that would have made it better is (separately from this tour) making a reservation to stay in the heritage park overnight 🙌

The experience was great! I went with my boyfriend (it was a gift for him as he's a huge fun of everything that's viking). Even if I didn't know much about that, our guide shared some exciting stories making our experience at the Irish National Heritage Park interesting and fun!
