Excellent look at the history of the coffin ships. Well worth a visit if in the New Ross area
Go back in time 170 years. The ship is a replica built 30years ago. A well guided tour with actors and a knowledgeable guide who will answer your questions about how the people emigrated to America to escape the famine in Ireland. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience well worth a visit.
