  • House tour is good. Famine museum needs a lot of reading if you are into that. Gardens are great on a sunny day.... And the food is fab in the cafe!! The shop has lots of treasures. You gotta try the Roscommon Chocolate
  • Interesting place gives a balanced prospective to a dark time in Irish History. Excellent tour guide
  • Excellent tour guide and good famine expo.
  • I visited the park and museum many years ago with my mother, an immigrant to Canada who grew up in these parts. The house was interesting enough, but what really made an impact on me was the famine museum: this put the history of the famine into perspective. I came to appreciate the importance of the potato and have since had more respect for this humble tuber.
  • I visited the park and museum with my daughters -- 21 and 15 -- and my mother. All four of us consider it a high point of our trip. Granted, I tend to be a history buff, but the opportunity to see this fabulous building and to contemplate the lives of its inhabitants was much appreciated. The gardens were also a delight. The Famine Museum was incredibly moving and it helped us gain an understanding of the horrors of that era. I can't say that the quality of the food is any reason to skip this experience.
