Group Visitors Tickets Options
Two of Dublin’s most immersive emigration experiences. Visit these two attractions, you not only save time, but you will go through the whole journey.
What is the Jeanie Johnston Famine Ship?
The Jeanie Johnston is an authentic replica Famine ship moored at Custom House Quay. The original ship carried Irish emigrants on transatlantic voyages throughout the Famine years in the 1800s.
What is EPIC: The Irish Emigration Museum?
EPIC: The Irish Emigration Museum is an award-winning multi-media experience covering the Irish diaspora's history and emigration to other countries. This museum was voted “Europe's Leading Tourist Attraction" three years in a row at the World Travel Awards.
What can your group expect from this combination package?
- Experience the cramped conditions the ship's passengers endured for weeks at sea
- Learn about the personal lives of the ship's passengers
- Explore what it means to be Irish through fully interactive and engaging exhibits
- Discover the far-reaching influence of Irish history
Who are the tour guides?
The tour guides on the Jeanie Johnston Famine Ship are skillful storytellers who bring the history and stories of the ship to life.
EPIC: The Irish Emigration Museum is a self-guided experience.
When you step out from below deck, and the sunlight hits your eyes, you feel like an Irish immigrant stepping into Quebec harbour — even if just for a moment.
Visit the Jeannie Johnson Famine Ship first, as it will give you a deeper appreciation of what the people featured in EPIC went through.

Notes for Group Leaders

We recomend both activities to be done on the same day but not necessarily one after the other.
