My father's ancestors would have come to America on a boat much like this one. Seeing it and understanding the horrowing trip was truly an eye opener. The rebuilt Dunbrody is being well maintained...

Fantastic place, lots of really interesting parts of our local history. So well run, staff so friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend a visit
Enjoyed it. I have been on a few more of these Famine ships and the conditions for those escaping the Great hunger were inhuman, and as Refugees, Emigrants, those who did not die from disease rapidly spreading, and made it over, very little known on how they made it in America and Canada.. Some women would have gone into Service. The Famine ship in New Ross experience is very professionally carried out with re-enacting of two different experiences of the journey. Very well done, worth the visit.
