A culture clash like no other is set to take place on Culture Night (September 16th) at the Irish National Heritage Park as three Shaolin Masters from the ancient east’s Henan province of China will travel to Ireland’s Ancient East to perform a free Shaolin Show in Wexford.
The Shaolin Masters, Master Zheng, Master Yang and Master Ma arrive to Ireland just in time for Culture Night in order to host a three-month residency at Monart Destination Spa in county Wexford, where they will teach and carry out performances of Shaolin life and Chinese Culture at the destination Spa during their stay.

Shaolin Masters served the people of China as warriors and Buddhist Monks for many centuries earning respect for their discipline, bravery, adaptability and action oriented approach.
The Shaolin continue this 2,000-year-old tradition and the Shaolin Temple where the Master’s train on a daily basis offers a rare window into China’s ancient past.
At the Irish National Heritage Park open-air museum at 6pm on September 16th the Shaolin Masters Zheng, Master Yang and Master Ma from the Henan Province in China who have trained all of their lives at the Shaolin Temple will demonstrated performances of Shaolin life and Chinese Culture showcasing their spectacular skills.
They will perform Qi Gong a series of eight ancient exercises of the Shaolin which promotes health and longevity and Tai Chi a series of slow movements and transitions from differing positions ranging from easy to challenging to promote strength and release tension and they will also showcase the art of Kung Fu.
Commenting on the upcoming Culture Night event, Liam Anthony Griffin of Monart Destination Spa said, “We are delighted to team up with the Irish National Heritage Park and host what is set to be a fantastic showcase of Shaolin martial arts.
We have welcomed the Shaolin Masters to Monart for many years and it is part of their ethos to share their culture, knowledge and way of life and their dedication to health and wellbeing and to strengthening the mind and body to be prepared for whatever life brings, as Monart is an adults only destination we were particularly keen to enable the Shaolin to showcase their skills to younger members of the audience and their arrival just in time for Culture Night this years is entirely fitting.”
