This was amazing!!!! Not what I expected at all. Virtual reality at its best. Literally felt like I was either going to fall off the world or drown!!!! 😁 If you don't like heights or rats, close your eyes!!! Wouldn't recommend for very young children though. But was €10 well spent. Gifts are a reasonable price too. Well done to all concerned. Only downside was the lack of signposting - we walked right by the entrance!
This is a hidden gem of tourism in Ireland let alone Waterford. It is a virtual reality experience where you go into a replica of a viking longhouse, sit down and put on a VR headset and headphones. Then it becomes absolutely outstanding. You find yourself sailing along with viking ships and having viking warriors talking at and through you. You are up in space with the moon and mythical dragons floating in front of you. And you monastery libraries as they write the history of the Vikings. They can only accommodate 10 at a time so advance booking is recommended. The only recommendation I would have is move to a larger venue. Every historical site should look to emulate this.
