We use the story of one renowned New Ross emigrant family to illustrate the circumstances of Famine-era Rossonians.


Walk in The Footsteps of The Kennedy Family

JFK’s great grandfather Patrick Kennedy worked as a cooper (barrel maker) in Cherry’s Brewery, New Ross until he emigrated in 1849. We follow the route of his daily commute to and from work along the same streets and past many of the same buildings. We tell the story of those streets, people and buildings spiced up with relevant stories and anecdotes.


We can take your group on a walk you won’t forget covering a wide range of New Ross history. Book your small private group (up to 8) adventure directly on our website. If your group is bigger than that, we invite you to contact us, and we will be able to help you tailor the perfect walk with you. Small Private Groups (1 – 8 people): Large Private Groups (9 – 25 people)



If you go on one of these walking tours with Myles, you can walk through the streets as you would have 100 years ago.
