Tales of Gaelic kingship, Norman knights, power shifts and miracle working saints...

Experience the story of invasion and ambitious Gaelic kings in an informative and entertaining way.


Visit the Medieval Ferns Experience and you’ll be surprised by what you’ll find.  If you’re looking for things to do in Wexford, we take an interactive, fun and innovative approach to telling our medieval story.  As the centre of Wexford’s medieval history, we love sharing stories of ambitious Gaelic kings, eager Norman knights and, of course where would you be without a miracle working saint!  We have it all in the Ancient Capital of Leinster.

Using a mix of virtual reality, sensory and audio visual you can immerse yourself in our fantastic medieval story – as a monastic settlement founded by St. Aidan in the early 7th century, through to the 11th and 12th century when the Kings of Leinster ruled from Ferns.   Take time to visit and take the inauguration stone challenge and see if you’re fit to be a king – its just one of a number of innovative elements in the Medieval Ferns Experience.
