  • We really enjoyed the Famine Experience. The guide was great, informative and the actors on the ship were engaging and funny in bringing awareness to the famine and life on the ship. I would highly...

  • Very informative and interesting. If you haven't been before and don't know what you're looking for it's not too easy to find. Go straight to the customer service desk in the shopping centre, near the food court. This is the starting point and where you pick up an interactive screen, that gives you audio and video prompts. This is a self led tour with points in the shopping centre to visit, noting old sections from the Kilkenny workhouse.
  • Unbelievable!! would highly recommend this. It is based in the shopping center and surrounding area as for this is where the famine work house was. You wear earphones for the audio and a small video screen for pictures etc this screen is the size of a mobile phone. Very informative and very sad history. Definitely a must for people to go to and hard to believe but it is free.
