For a hundred years, Vikings in their swift long ships raided the monasteries and settlements of Ireland, taking slaves and treasure.
Then in 902, their warrior leaders were driven from Ireland and a fragile peace fell over the land.
This peace was shattered 1100 years ago in 917 when Reginald, grandson of the legendary Ivar, returned to Waterford where he built a fort and became king.
He then re-established Viking power in Dublin and sailed to England to become ‘King of York and all the foreigners of Ireland and Britain’.
Experience in virtual reality these blood-thirsty slaving raiders and town builders and international traders. See the authentic Viking hut, constucted as it would have been, in the ruins of New Street's ancient friary. And learn what it means to be a Viking!
