  • Is is part of our History. Very interesting and role playing very good. I loved the Hall of Fame and all the Kennedy History. Delighted to see Brendan Grace RIP in the Hall of Fame .
  • A taste of what the journey many thousands of migrants had to endure in the hope of s better life. Brought to life by a knowledgeable guide and character actors.
  • 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.
  • Excellent experience. Thought provoking. Well worth a visit.
