Riverside Park Hotel
Welcome to the Dunbrody Famine Ship and Emigrant Experience.
Centred on an authentic reproduction of an 1840’s Emigrant Vessel, the Dunbrody Visitor Centre also houses world-class themed exhibits and the Irish America Hall of Fame.
Located in New Ross, Co. Wexford, the Dunbrody is an essential stop on any tour of Ireland.
Family, Child, and Concession rates are available. With full wheelchair accessibility to the Ship, Visitor Centre and Cafe, there is a friendly welcome for all the family!
Here at the Dunbrody Famine Ship and Irish Emigrant Experience, we tell the story of famine emigration from the point of view of those who left. The brave and desperate, and above all, ordinary people who chose to leave everything they knew for an uncertain future abroad.
The Dunbrody Tour – the Irish Emigrant Experience
Our tour takes you to the quayside of New Ross, where the Departure Exhibit will set the scene of famine emigration. Waiting for you is The Dunbrody, a 3 masted barque that will be your home for the month long trip to New York.
Onboard, our tour guides will explain the harshness of conditions on the voyage. Costumed performers play the roles of famine emigrants, and bring the experience to life. At the end of the tour, our Arrivals Hall will show you the fate awaiting those who survived the trip. It would take generations of hard work, and loyal service, before the Irish community were to become an accepted and respected part of North American society.
Afterwards, take a visit to the café and sip on a Java Republic Barista grade coffee and a homemade scone or something small from our Lite Bites menu while overlooking the bustling quayside of New Ross.
