Definitely an enjoyable and learning experience with our guide as we walked through the deck and lower level of this famine ship. The "actors" were very good and believable, and the props all over the ship made us feel we were there during this period....More

We really enjoyed our visit to this ship. After touring and hearing about the ship we experienced a nice drama on the life of passengers traveling on this ship. What their life was life and exactly how difficult life was for families on a ship...More

I really enjoyed the tour and I got a sense of what life was like during the famine. The staff were lovely and the food amazing. As an Irish person, it was great to see what Ireland has to offer.

This recreation of the original migrant ship is a real delight. The whole experience was led by a guide who was excellent. This is a must see if you are in the area. There’s a good gift shop and a restaurant attached. Highly recommended.

This was well worth the time. Reasonable fee. Intro takes you through background of the coffin ships, the Dunbrody and the provisioners. Then a guide begins your tour. The replica of the Dunbrody is amazing. I don't know how anybody survived. There are two women...More
