  • Very enjoyable visit with the family. Tour guide brought one back to times on board the famine ship and the actor provided a living experience. Plenty to see and learn for both young and old. All staff very friendly and welcoming. Good food in the restaurant afterwards. Highly recommended!
  • One of the most interesting places l've been to in a long time. Definitely recommend the guides tour. Very informative & certainly made you think of what people on board had to endure. Plus live characters telling you what they have to endure.
