GetYourGuide - Dec 2022

“We found our visit to the Jeanie Johnston really interesting. Our guide Gearoid was very well-informed and interesting - we really learned a great deal about the plight of the Irish trying to leave Ireland during the potato famine of the 1840s. It was a very memorable visit.”
