Viking reenactors from all over Ireland and Europe will camp at Slane Castle and will tell the Viking story of the Boyne Valley to visitors. Full size replica long-ships will be on display and sailors from the Vikings TV Series will tell you about their adventures.


Viking families and warriors will be camped in an authentic tented village below the Castle.

The camp will be open from 11 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday to show how Viking folk lived in the area more than a thousand years ago. Demonstrations throughout each day will be by crafts people using medieval tools and ancient skills and will include, woodworking, leatherworking, pottery, weaving, jewellery making, birds of prey by Raven Haven Aviary and Rune Readings by a shaman – and much more. 

Visitors to the camp can try archery and hear Skalds tell Viking sagas.
