  • 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.
