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.

Enjoyable tour, excellent tour guides. The ship is lovely and gives you a great insight into how the poor famine victims had to fight for survival. The visitors Centre in informative. There is also a cafe. Ideal place to visit for Irish people and tourists also
Very informative little museum. I would highly recommend the tour to get the most information out as possible. The Dunbrody herself is a lovely replica who was made to be seaworthy but never quite made it out to the sea (our guide said it's because they thought they wouldn't get her back!). It's easy to see how proud the museum is of their ship, and rightly so. And if you need an extra selling point, you're allowed to ding the original Dunbrody ships bell!
Great experience and very friendly staff. Interesting history and amazing to see the conditions people lived in and the hardships they went through. They really bring it alive here
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 south east.
The people there were extremely nice and courteous. We arrived about closing time, but they allowed us to go onboard the ship and look around anyway. Very interesting visit since we are in the shipping business.
