This Centre is really well laid out and interactive. It tells a very important story of Irish migration, forced and voluntary as well as the Titanic story and other shipping history.

This old railway station, now converted into the heritage center, still bears remnants of the original station in its appearance. Lots of little shops around, and places for food. Then the Titanic heritage museum. Great for doing your family research.
