  • Interesting tour. Very enthusiastic guide. Partly wheelchair accessible. Nice cafe.
  • It was a very entertaining tour with great actresses and interesting stories. It brings history alive.
  • Although it's probably only an hour and a half's entertainment it's really interesting and really gives you a great insight into Ireland's history.
  • Very interesting history of the ship...a little out of my way on my driving tour, but very glad I made the stop here.
  • Amazing tour, emotional , loved the opportunity to explore!
