Welcome to the

Magnus Viking Association


We are Northern Ireland's premier living history re-enactment group. Our group is made up from of highly motivated people from all backgrounds who come together to learn, teach, and share experiences. We promote the culture and lifestyle of around 500 B.C.E to 1500 C.E. Mainly focusing on the Viking age.


Since 2003, we have done everything from school visits, living history displays, tours, banquets, organising large festivals, to film and TV work. Traveling nationally and internationally, sharing and meeting interesting people along the way.


We have three Viking age ships that are simular to both the Skuldelev 3 and Skuldelev 6 ships that were discovered in Roskilde, Denmark.
