Great to be back indoors for fabulous meal
Jul 2021 • Couples
We stopped for lunch here on Tuesday 27th July 2021. This was their first day open for indoor dining with outside dining tables also available. The staff were great following all Covid procedures and very helpful. Food choice was good. I had a curry and my wife the seafood chowder and both were excellent. We will be back soon!
All the shops in New Ross were so friendly and had great offers with many items on sale.

Sabrina, Thank you for the great review, I will pass your lovely comments on to the staff. Boarding the ship gives you a real sense of what people endured when they made the decision to emigrate. Hopefully we will get to welcome you aboard on another occasion or perhaps for a Tea/Coffee or bite to eat at our Captains Table Restaurant. Thank you from the Dunbrody Crew-Maura

Really interesting tour, the ship itself looks amazing and true to life. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the the lady playing the role of a passenger on the ship was brilliant, funny and portrayed the character very well!

We Loved the Realistic Experience
Oct 2019
Crawling about this old ship might not be for everyone, but we brought pictures of ships our ancestors crossed the Atlantic on and this ship definitely brought their experience to life. Very realistic.

Bill, I am glad to hear you an authentic experience with us, and thank you for taking the time to leave a review on our attraction. Boarding the Ship and taking in all the different sounds and smells really does bring the voyage so many under toke to life. Hopefully you will get to visit again on another occasion, if not to see the Ship but perhaps for a bite to eat in our Captain's Table Restaurant. Thank you, from the Dunbrody Crew-Maura

Dunbrody ship lock down
Aug 2020
One hour pre-booked guided tour was both interesting, informative and very worthwhile. The Tour guide gently and carefully instilled upon the audience the consequences of the potato blight and the options rendered. Textual screens and video set the atmosphere before the onboard ship experience.....Lock down in its most fullest sense for those that traveled on her in Steerage....but you're on a guided tour. Enjoy

Great start to the day
Aug 2020
Had a great visit. Jason was an exceptional guide. Hard to get the balance right on a famine ship but the kids (5 and 7) learned a lot and appreciated the sadness of the history while also really enjoying being on a big old ship, thanks to Jason and his friendliness to them. Very good covid awareness while making everyone feel very comfortable. Thanks again. We got the early slot which I would recommend as not so busy and great start to the day.
