There is also a visitors centre with a cafe and it is well worth a visit with plenty to do nearby. President John F. Kennedy visited this very spot and recalled his great grandparents leaving Ireland in 1849 saying 'famine emigrants carrying only two things, a strong desire for freedom and a strong religious faith'.
