New Ross, Co. Wexford, Ireland, is the ancestral home of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The John F. Kennedy Trust is run by a Voluntary Board of Directors and was founded in 1988 to commemorate his historic legacy. This is done through our involvement in community projects that enrich the lives of local people and invigorate the local economy by creating jobs and encouraging investment in our town and its environs. The Trust is responsible for the management of the Dunbrody Famine Ship Experience and The Kennedy Homestead.

Dunbrody Famine Ship is one of the prime tourist attractions in the South East of Ireland. Centred on an authentic reproduction of an 1840’s emigrant vessel, it provides a world-class interpretation of the famine emigrant experience.

It incorporates a guided tour, costumed performers and themed exhibitions of the highest quality. ‘The Dunbrody’ provides a unique insight into the bravery and fortitude with which Irish people faced up to a desperate situation. As we embark on an exciting new expansion of the Visitor Experience in New Ross and the regeneration of our town through the development of a major tourism project, we are offering sponsorship opportunities and seeking support in raising funds to meet our funding requirements to ensure the delivery of this new and exciting tourism project for the South East.
