Dunbrody Famine Ship

Description: Located  on the quayside in New Ross, the Dunbrody Famine Ship is a full scale replica  of the original ship built in 1845 which transported emigrants to North America. Visitors to the ship are admitted by  means of an 1840s ticket, and meet actors, in costume and character, who tell  of the conditions on board and in Ireland during the famine period.  This authentic recreation, with its actors, sound effects and smells will  transport you back in time, leaving a lasting impression. The ship provides a  unique insight into a period of history which has shaped modern day Ireland and America.
