A garden commemorating the Great Famine, which saw one million Irish people die and another million emigrate. The path through the garden is a metaphor for Irish history and is synonymous with the journey of the Irish people. Opened to the public by President Mary McAleese on 15 October 1999. The area in front of the thatched Heritage House is known as Garraí na bPrátaí (The Potato Garden).
