Overview
More
Rated as one of the most popular attractions in Dublin, a visit to the Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship and Famine Museum will intrigue and fascinate all ages. Over 1 million people left Ireland during the 1840s at the height of the Great Famine, fleeing starvation and hoping for a new life in America. This mass emigration created a huge diaspora of people with Irish ancestry in the Americas, and later in Australia. The life-size wax figures in the museum below deck on the Jeanie Johnston are all modelled on actual passengers who made the journey to North America on the ship. Daily tours begin AT THE SHIP which is located on Custom House Quay just downriver from the International Financial Services Centre and across the road from the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel.

Cool old pirate ship. We just looked from the sidewalk and walkway. The ship looked very neat from the street view.

The ship itself is the replica, exposition probably not the best but it is about the history of Ireland, famine and emigration. Special thanks for the guide, Emier. She is a very enthusiastic person and presents the facts in very interesting way.
