The story of why so many people emigrated from Ireland and the conditions they endured is amazing. This tour does a good job of depicting the conditions of the trip across the Atlantic. I would recommend it to anyone interested in this history.

Definitely worth a visit , also with children/teenagers. To see the reconstruction of a ship that brought Irish immigrants under harsh conditions to the USA. The guide Ray brought history alive and had great knowledge. It was really interesting.

The Jeanie Johnston is the only ship that never lost a life in its myriad trips to bring immigrants to distant shores. The speaker was informative and lively.
