Strokestown offers many different options - a self guided visit through the Famine museum, a tour of the 'big house' with authentic furnishings and a walk through the gardens. There is something for everyone! It is an impressive undertaking.
The famine exhibit is full of well-organized information about a very difficult part of Irish history and was very user friendly. It achieved just the right balance on how the information was presented.
The docent who guided us through the house was knowledgable and the artifacts interesting. The kitchen has to have been the highlight of this part of the tour.
The gardens were attractive and made for an interesting walk. There was also a parkland walk which we did not have time to take but promised to be fun.
There is free WiFi offered in the restaurant. Some nice books in the shop.
