  • 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.
  • Fabulous.. 3 miles not km! Great story.. Great place.. Well done to all. Well worth a visit.
  • Fantastic visitor centre and what can we say about our informative guide Master Grennon. Group of ICA from Grain Guild Kilkenny travelling with Kavanagh Travel on weekend to White's Hotel Wexford .
