Ulfhednar Hird Ireland

We’re thrilled to announce that the Ulfhednar Hird Ireland will be joining us at our upcoming event on June 1st & 2nd, 2024! Get ready to experience the true essence of the Viking spirit like never before.

Contrary to common belief, the Ulfhednar Hird Ireland doesn’t just reenact Vikings – they embody the very spirit that defined the Viking era. Their mission transcends borders and ethnic origins, merging cultures from the early medieval period of the 10th century. From Ireland to Eastern Slavs, they bring together a diverse range of individuals who share a passion for the Viking way of life.

What sets them apart is their dedication to full-armored combat, also known as full-contact fighting or the Eastern style. But it’s not just about battles and conquests – the Ulfhednar Hird Ireland also showcases the craftsmanship of the era, with wonderful women personally sewing clothing and toys from the early Middle Ages.

During their exhibitions, they’re more than just performers – they’re educators. Ready to answer countless questions about their lifestyle and traditions, they provide a fascinating glimpse into what life was like during the 10th century.

Join us at the Timahoe Heritage Festival for an unforgettable journey into the heart of the Viking world. Mark your calendars for June 1st & 2nd, 2024, and prepare to be transported back in time!

“Our group, contrary to common belief, do not re-enact Vikings, but rather we embody the Viking spirit. We don’t limit ourselves to Norway or Denmark; instead, we merge the cultures of the early medieval period of the 10th century. 

Being a Viking is not about ethnic origin, but rather a profession that connected many cultures. That’s why, one can meet people from the 10th century, from Ireland to Eastern Slavs. 

Our team focuses on full-armored combat, known as full-contact fighting or the Eastern style. We also have wonderful women who personally sew clothing or toys from the early Middle Ages .During our exhibitions, we are ready to answer numerous questions about what we do in our free time. “
