Overview

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.

We enjoyed our tour of the Jeanie Johnston, learned interesting details about this ship (which is a replica) and what made her so special. A must do, especially if you're interested in anything / everything maritime as we are.

If you want to learn anything about the history of Ireland (or American immigration) when in Dublin, you should definitely visit here. You are shown onboard and inside the ship by an engaging 'storytelling' guide with an obvious passion for the ship and its history....More

Every time I complain about sitting on a plane I will remember this experience of what the Irish emigrants went through. Their living and death experiences was so horrific aboard these coffin ships and though this ship didn’t lose a single soul, it opened my...More

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
