Join the Big Dig at Kilkenny Castle Park for a child friendly event.
Children will have an opportunity to experience what it is like to be an archaeologist by learning how to excavate the remains of a Viking house. They will have an opportunity to dig for Viking treasures and artefacts dating back over 1000 years and learn about our Viking ancestors through the eyes of real archaeologists!
The replica ‘Viking House’ workshop and excavation is designed around children from 5 – 12 years of age.
Event is free but booking is essential:
Online places are limited! However, there is also an option to book with us on the day of the event at the venue. We will be located on the Castle lawn between the playground and the Castle
