Kennedy Homestead

It was here that John Fitzgerald Kennedy's great grandfather was born in 1820. A room exhibits photographs and souvenirs of the President's visit in 1963, amongst which is the wreath which he laid on the grave of the leaders of the Easter Rising (1916) at Arbour Hill in Dublin. There is also a family tree of the Kennedy family in Ireland and in the United States.
