Donaghmore Famine Workhouse Museum reviews

Learned a lot in a down to earth manner, in an uncomplicated place that traces a lot of the sad history of the famine, using impeccable and painstaking largely donated sources. more »
Good day helped reflect on our history , very informative and guide was extremely helpful. kid's realized how lucky they are.
The price includes a guided tour, where the guide is patient and answers all questions at any time. A film in several languages too. Very interesting. Would bring visitors again.
