This was an impromptu visit and I was so glad to have made it. The Georgian house which holds the display was built perhaps 50 years after the Battle it recounts and my one regret was that the house itself wasn't part of the visit....More

After reading up on the battle it was great to finally visit the site it took place. The visitor centre is well laid out with total access throughout for wheelchairs or pushchairs. Don't take children if you are looking for an exciting, interactive attraction to...More

Spent about an hour here and thought a little more could have been put on for visitors to see and do as it's quite out of the way to get to. The first impression of the cafe is that it's been nicely built and situated...More

Called to the site which is just off the main Dublin Belfast motorway, having been there 20 years ago. What a change! Excellent gardens, walks and a lovely tea room. Interpretative centre and living reactors are both exceptional - live firing of muskets. The book...More
