Viking Adventure Centre
This visitor attraction presents an exciting, live and interactive experience of life in Viking Dublin. A Norse guide takes you on a fascinating journey through a Dublin of long ago. Walk the narrow streets of the Viking town of 'Dyflin' where you can chat to the locals, observe them at their daily work and 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 Dubin's Viking Adventure as authentic as it is entertaining.
An engaging exhibition to be enjoyed by all historians, students and anyone interested in Dublin's cultural heritage. Why not try a Viking Feast! Having experienced the daily life of the early settlers, let them treat you to some Viking night life. Sample a 'Viking Feast' of 1,000 years ago, where latter-day Vikings will serve up an evening of fun, food and live entertainment in the impressive setting of the Banqueting Hall. Leave reality and the twentieth century behind and enjoy this feast with a difference.
