We arrived in Dublin and spent our first 2 nights in New Ross. The Famine ship and museum are top notch. The guides and staff are wonderful. It is an excellent "experience", you will learn a lot and have fun.

Eye opening experience, especially for those of us who’s ancestors made this trip. Makes you wonder how they had the courage to do it.
