Tour an old ship that would have taken emigrants from Ireland to North America. Even though it was cool and chilly we had a good time learning about the ship, the history of the circumstances people were in and the stories of some of the passengers. Our tour guide was tremendous as he had worked there for 8 years. He was able to speak about anything related to the boat or Ireland in general. He also talked about how they are still always trying to research what happened to the passengers after making it to North America and find their descendants.
Fascinating insight into the lives of Irish migrants at sea and a brilliant experience overall. Tours are cheap and don't take long so it won't eat into your day. Our tour guide was really informative and friendly and really made the experience worthwile. I would recommend this to anyone of all ages
Ray knows and loves this stuff. It’s a real eye opener and so worth the modest entry fee and an opportunity to understand Dublin, Ireland and its people. Courageous folks. Very worthwhile visit. Don’t miss it.
Paul was brilliant. The stories of the past were thought provoking and very relevant to the voyages in times gone by. If you visit go to EPIC too.
Amazing tour. Excellent tour guides. They really seem to love the history themselves and it shows. Always finding out new information to add to the tour.
