We depart for Wexford from our agreed departure point by luxury coach,
accompanied by an experienced guide. Our first stop will be at Treacy’s
Hotel in Enniscorthy for tea / coffee and scones before our onward
journey to New Ross.
The Kennedy Homestead
The birthplace of JFK’s grandfather, Patrick Kennedy, at Dunganstown,
New Ross has a new Visitor’s Centre. This unique museum tells the story
of those who left Ireland and also, those who stayed behind. It follows
the journey of the Kennedy clan from emigrant to President. Members
of the present generation of Kennedy’s oversee the museum. There is an
interesting collection of Kennedy memorabilia, including footage of the
famous 1963 Presidential visit.
The Dunbrody Experience
The Dunbrody Famine Ship is anchored at the quayside in New Ross. The
ship is an authentic replica of a 1840s emigrant ship, similar to the ship on
which Patrick Kennedy would have departed. Costumed performers will
enhance your experience as they re-create the hardship and challenges
endured by the millions who left our shores in the mid 1800s.
We head back to Enniscorthy for our evening meal, at the well known
Treacy’s Hotel. The hotel has an excellent reputation for food and service
and is a very popular dining place for the locals. After our meal we will
return to the agreed drop off point.
