  • In July 2016 we visited the Kennedy Homestead. We saw a great and unique exhibition and we're impressed of the friendliness and hospitality of the staff! Furthermore we (4 persons) got a detailed and extensive tour through the exhibition. After the tour we had a friendly and pleasant conversation with the staff in the sales room that we will keep in a permanent memory. All in all a successful end to our holiday in your wonderful country! Keep it up! We're not the last time at the Kennedy Homestead and we will definitely come back.
  • Great insight into where JFK's grandfather came from in Ireland. The story of how JFK sought out his ancestors while on a visit to Ireland in 1947 & then how he returned to a triumphant 'homecoming' 5 months before he was assassinated in 1963. Staff are knowledgeable, friendly & helpful. A great spot for quiet reflection on the millions who have emigrated from Irish shores. The fact that the house is still occupied by relatives of JFK makes it all the more authentic.
  • Fascinating insight into this Iconic President. Well told and illustrated, wonderful items and relics of the family and their background, lots of photos, VERY moving experience. Barrie
  • Incredible experience. Had this down as a possible stop during my week in Ireland, and I almost didn't do it. Well I am sooooooo glad I did!!! This turned out to be one of my favorite stops on my entire journey. The tour guide (lady) was incredibly knowledgeable, and the stories she shared literally moved me to tears. I never expected to feel so emotional about JFK's history and family.
  • Great place. Well worth a visit
