Dublins Viking Adventure
You have the opportunity to travel through time at Dublin’s Viking Adventure, an exciting, live and interactive experience of life in Viking Dublin. The Norse guide takes you on a fascinating journey through a Dublin of long ago. Walk the narrow streets of the Viking Town of ‘Dublin’ where you can chat to the locals, observe their daily work and even experience the sounds and smells of the city, imaginatively and accurately recreated and brought to life.
Located close to Wood Quay, the heart of the 9th and 10th century Viking city, the Viking Adventure also houses an extensive collection of artefacts discovered during the excavation of this site, considered to be the most important of its kind outside Scandinavia. These excavations revealed a mighty store of Viking artefacts, and provided information that has made Dublin’s Viking Adventure as authentic as it is entertaining.
