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 Jury's Inn Hotel.

When you have ancestors who came to North America on a ship like this you really get a sense of what they had to endure, and it makes you amazed at how brave they were to do it. Gives you a real sense of gratitude...More

An excellent history of this wonderful ship brought to life by Rob our guide. Well worth booking. The heartbreaking stories of the famine victims and the benevolence of the ship owner come to light on this tour.
