The Dunbrody Famine Ship and Irish Emigrant Experience visitor centre is a spectacular feature of the New Ross quayside. This ship is an authentic replica of the 1840s emigrant vessel and provides a world-class interpretation of the famine emigrant experience. Moored on the bank of the River Barrow, this award-winning tourist attraction allows visitors to take a trip with a difference by travelling back in time to see and feel the sense of sadness and excitement felt by famine emigrants setting sail for a new life.



Wells House & Gardens is a great Victorian house in the heart of Wexford built in the 1600s and which was renovated along with the gardens in the 1830s by Daniel Robertson. Among its myriad of attractions are woodland walks, a living house tour, daily garden tours, a craft courtyard, terrace gardens, archery, clay pigeon shooting, falconry and an animal farm – definitely a highlight on any visit to Wexford!
