  • It was very moving to see how and what people had to endure in escaping the famine. Only made worse to find that there was good available and not released to those in need. Shame in the landowners...  more »
  • While strolling about the area we came upon this it was closed due to renovations but one could get a feeling for it and appreciate the work involved as you viewed it from the path. Quite a few people...  more »

  • The Jeanie Johnston famine ship is really cool and such a great piece of history. This really underscores a lot of Ireland's depressive and IMPRESSIVE history. We went while it was raining and the guide was very accommodating and very friendly and informative. This ship is old so watch your head!
  • Very nice. Was a little disappointed. You get on go downstairs & its over. So much construction & doors closed that you really can't get a real feel. The guide was good.
  • This attraction is very neat! If you like tradition and fun stories of what sea travel from Ireland to North America was like in the 1800's this is a must! Very detailed tour guide, great!!!!!
  • A Dublin must-do experience for everyone:dubliner and tourist alike. Paul, our tour guide, gently but firmly explained the harsh realities of both the ship and The Famine. In less than an hours time he was able to bring our group of tourists and Irishmen, children and adults to bear witness to one of modern history's most tragic man-made disasters. One of the few things a person can do for 10 euros that will change your Life, and you gratitude for food forever. Thank you Paul.
  • A terrific insight into life, travel and the famine in the 19th century. The tour guides are knowledgeable and bring the images to life.
