Testimonials

Heart touching!
A nice exposition about the dramatic event that took place in the 19th century that moved me and sensitized me.

A moving and well-balanced account of the famine
A logical, thorough and well-organised education on the Irish potato famine.
The short film was poignant, evocative and brought the history to life. A real tragedy
that this exhibition is not permanent as it is such a devastating and important part of Irish history.

So Poignant
My mom really wanted to see this so I went along and I'm so glad I did. I knew a bit about the
potato famine but very few details. While the exhibit isn't flashy or very eye catching when you walk in,
the history and information on display is incredible. I went on quite a few tours while in Dublin but didn't
learn as much anywhere else. The story is shocking and sad but is something that should definitely be told.
It took about an hour to read everything and watch the brief video, and the man working at the desk was more
than happy to talk to us more and give us even more information. I would recommend this to anyone.
