Great place to learn things about your Irish Heritage! There's fun activities for children an adults alike. The cafe provides great food & drink and is must-visit when your in Wexford.
We found the method to get there expensive. Taxi there and back was 16 euros. The restaurant was well laid out. Service was excellent. Value for money. We had a tour of the centre. The guide was very personable, interacted with the kids, full of well rounded knowledge of all over Ireland , directing information from areas around North and south of Ireland. This was right through from Neolithic to Viking. Brilliant. We found it a bit of an overload of information, and wish we had longer. Thank you to everyone for thier kindness.
