Dunbrody Famine Ship


Dunbrody Famine Ship is one of the premier tourist attractions in the South East of Ireland. Centred on an authentic reproduction of an 1840’s emigrant vessel, it provides a world-class interpretation of the famine emigrant experience. Incorporating guided tour, costumed performers and themed exhibitions of the highest quality, ‘The Dunbrody’ provides a unique insight into the bravery and fortitude with which Irish people faced up to a desperate situation. As well as the Ship’s Tour, the Dunbrody Visitor Centre houses a charming river-view cafe and the Irish America Hall of Fame.The Hall of Fame commemorates the critical contribution of Irish men and women to US history, as well as acknowledging the continuing contribution of contemporary Irish-Americans. Each year the Hall of Fame inducts new members; most recently Donald Keough, Michael Flatley and Maureen O’Hara.


An answer to a question that has always eluded me is, how can you go from surviving a famine ship to living in probably one of the worlds most powerful countries. After I visited the Dunbrody Famine Ship I found out the answer to that very question. It was quite simple really, if you can survive life on what is locally known as a coffin ship, you can survive absolutely anything life has to throw at you. The answer was there staring me in the face all this time, but the penny only dropped after visiting this fantastic attraction, such is the effect a visit here will have on you. When you approach the ship and it’s visitor centre, and you see the presidential flame that is twinned with the one at JFK’s grave at the Arlington Military Cemetary, you know you have arrived at a very special place indeed.
