Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship & Famine Museum

Address: Custom House Quay, Dublin 1

This guided tour takes place on a ship docked at Custom House Quay in Dublin’s city centre. Visitors will be taken through the daunting experience of millions of Irish people who fled from the country during the famine years and took the arduous journey across the Atlantic Ocean, hoping to find a better future in the “New World” in North America.

This ship is a replica of the original ship which sailed between Tralee in Co. Kerry and North America between 1847 and 1855. The visitors can discover how up to 250 people travelled on that ship all together for 6-8 weeks, often with complete strangers but always with the same desire of escape the ravages of famine.
