About
It has many names: Great Famine, Potato Famine, an Gorta Mór, and Drochshaol. An event so devastating and harrowing that even today 170 years later it still unleashes a wellspring of emotion from the descendants of its victims. On this tour you will learn about the real causes of the cataclysm the overtook Ireland in that key period of 1845-1852, and its legacy that lingers even into the present day. The tour includes both a walking tour of the city with a trained historian and tickets to the EPIC Ireland Museum and the Jeanie Johnston Famine Museum.

Workhouse tour very well done

This was very well done and very informative. Tracing the story of the brothers and doctors who were at the workhouse helped to humanize the message.
