Review

“ The good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love and happiness are all interwoven into one single, indescribable whole that is called life…” Jackie Kennedy.

Describing the remarkable visit to his family homestead in Ireland as “the best four days of my life,” President John F Kennedy's extraordinarily important journey to his homeland, set the fires of pride within Ireland's heart ablaze. In June, 1963, John F Kennedy was the most powerful man in the world, and in just three generations, the Kennedy family had risen from beneath the ashes like the firey phoenix. The heartbreaking escape from famine that his great-grandfather Patrick Kennedy had endured: to the dizzying, ultimate heights of success; Kennedy was Ireland's returning hero, and visitors can retrace every historical step the man made, at The Kennedy Homestead in Dunganstown, New Ross in County Wexford. This one and only cultural museum, is dedicated to “the Kennedys who went away and the Kennedys who stayed behind.” Reliving that warm summer day in June 1963, is a truly inspiring event, and with lots of memorabilia, and souvenir shop to enjoy; come and hear the story of when the President of the United States, came to tea!
