Superb historical re-telling and re-living of the Irish migrations to America during the Great Famine Years. The site comprises a typical Irish 19th-century village and dockside where you can 'board a boat' of the era and emerge in America - history comes alive!

A well thought out theme park, with the history of the mass emigration unfolding in an interesting and sensitive way. The history park is great fun, with the little cottages sharing the lives of the folk who lived in them. All the children I have...More

This kind of historical 'walk though time' should exist someplace in the U.S. as well. You get a chance to walk through and experience areas that represent periods of time from hundreds of years ago to more modern times. Walk into a printer's shop and...More
