Ss Dunbrody Emigrant Ship - Review
The Dunbrody Famine ship provides a peek into the period of the Great Famine and the ensuing emigrant diaspora to New York. This ship that dates back to the 1840s has been beautifully restored and with the help of hands-on displays and costumed tour guides, visitors get an authentic experience of the difficulties that the famine brought with it. You cannot help but feel immense respect for the brave people of that period as they faced the desperate situation. The recreated presentations provide incredible insights on the choppy journey that the emigrants faced and the years of hard work and perseverance that they showed to be accepted in the North American society.

Ss Dunbrody Emigrant Ship, Wexford Reviews
An incredible exhibition of history. being able to walk on board the full size replica of the ship. To see how people in search of a better life in the new world travelled in the mid 1800s was a poignant reminder of the harsh reality of emigration. Our guide and the historical characters that visited the ship to tell their story during our tour were excellent.
They rebuilt this ship from the original details. It was pretty authentic, especially the stairway to the hold. The story reenactment was good. The famine ships lost so many passengers to disease and starvation. The very lucky ones survived.
This is an excellent tour. It takes about 40 minutes. It gives a great insight into what life was like on a coffin ship. The small size of the ship with approx 200 people below deck for 23 hours a day must have been horrific for those trying to escape the famine in Ireland. A must visit experience if you visit the north east.
Superb tour of the ship. Very informative and interesting. The restaurant is well worth a visit. The food is of good quality and reasonably priced. Service is good.
Onboard and onshore experiences very good - enthusiastic and fun guides and actors. Gives a visceral sense of what conditions were like in a coffin ship and how it may have felt to leave Ireland this way. Fine cafe overlooking the ship and the river.
