This 1.5 hour workshop is unique to the Irish National Heritage Park: our bows have been handmade to recreate actual archaeological finds from Ireland. Suitable for 10 year olds upwards (Involves intensive training and shooting). (Pre-booking essential)
Fulacht Fiadh & Horizontal Water Mill Demonstration:
You will have a demonstration of cooking in this prehistoric method, allowing each person to witness the meat being cooked and even sample some but also experience a display of Ireland’s only working Medieval Mill in action. The Mill harnesses water power which would have enabled our ancestors to produce flour in large quantities.
