What a cool place to visit, it is fascinating to see some of the artifacts that were related to the kennedy family and the history of the family and its origins! A great place to bring family or friends and very friendly staff!

Pleasantly surprised with this. Not much to see here, quite small, but the guide and video clips were excellent. Good value too

My family are history buffs, but even if we weren't, we still would have loved our visit to the Kennedy Homestead. There were 4 in our group and each one of us "felt" this place when we were there. It was an extremely moving experience....More

1 hour as it is so small. But if you don't go you won't have missed much.
