New Ross Things to Do

  • Dunbrody Famine Ship

    A reconstruction of the sailing ship SS Dunbrody which took thousands of immigrants from famine-struck Ireland to North America. Many of them died on the voyage in horribly cramped conditions. A couple of costumed characters tell the story of why these people put themselves through this and what life was like on board. Entertaining yet poignant.

    Check out the bronze statue of a Wexford Pikeman in the city centre. New Ross was the scene of fierce fighting during the 1798 Rebellion when a group of rebels tried to take the town. They were repelled by the defending British garrison, leaving 3,000 people dead and much of the town in ruins.

  • Tholsel

    Check out the 'Tholsel', (toll stall) on the corner of Quay Street and South Street. This building can be shown beyond the palmtrees in this photo. I was surprised to find palm trees growing here at shore of the river Barrow at New Ross, but they do! I'm still amazed.
