Review

“Have you seen the sun rays in the dark, do you feel my love when I’m not present, standing by your side while miles apart.” Gault/Gamble/Collett/Scott.

The deeply moving story of the incredible Irish people, who travelled from Ireland to America, aboard the Dunbrody Famine Ship in 1849, transports visitors back in time through this exceptional, award-winning tourist attraction. Situated in the lush, rolling countryside on the banks of the river Barrow, in the town of New Ross, you’ll visit the ‘William Graves & Son’ ticket office and living emigration museum, as well as an audio-visual, which gives real insight into the enormous courage, and steely endurance of the Irish people, as they faced the cruelty of famine. Experience the conditions faced by passengers who took this huge undertaking: with a fascinating guided tour, and costumed characters, who bring the story to life aboard this most excellent vessel. Known as ‘Coffin Ships’ due to the terrible conditions endured by Irish emigrants, against all odds these malnourished, yet unbroken people, then went on to achieve great, historical success once in America.
