Probably one of the most interesting (and interactive) museum tours that we've been on. Our city tour driver recommended it, and so glad we took his advice. Would visit again!

Well thought out interactive museum on how many Irish people took their Irish heritage to foreign shores. Good historical background too.

The EPIC museum was fascinating and very moving. It gave me a much better understanding of the reasons so many Irish people had to leave home.

I now know why this museum is so highly rated. I wasn't sure about going as it says it's interactive but my husband and I are in our mid fifties and found it very easy to use and so fun as the way you interacted with the exhibits was so cutting edge. We did this after the Jeanie Johnston and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It made us realize all the amazing people that emigrated had offspring that changed the world. If they had stayed in ireland the world would be a different place. There's a small mall and food court attached and great food choices when we finished our tour. Don't miss this museum.

It’s a good Trip to visit this museum. Our Tourguide Susan is very friendly (and funny) and she entertained a lot so it was not boring. It was very interesting and I’ve enjoyed a lot to listen to her. You should definitely visit and do the docklands your. It is very nice and modern. You’ll enjoy!!! It takes about 1-2 hours and you’ll love it.

Susan is one of the best! :) <3

Very interesting and enjoyable couple of hours walking through a very well organized museum that tells an incredible story about the Irish people and their struggles. We considered this our favorite activity in Dublin and highly recommend it. The only downside is that the small mall attached to it was mostly closed stores. There was one small take-away restaurant and a Starbucks open when we were there.

We purchased our tickets online with no problems and arrived early when the museum opened.

There is so much to see and do in Dublin, and this museum with it's many interactive displays is well worth a spot on your itinerary! It's in a historic former warehouse near the river, and is set up to be very user-friendly. The museum is well-thought out and interesting - and the passport that is stamped as you visit each exhibit is a fun extra. My group thoroughly enjoyed our visit here.

Hi LorLorSam, Thank you for visiting EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum. We are delighted to hear that you and your group enjoyed your visit with us and that you had fun stamping your passport! As you mentioned, our museum is set in the restored vaults of The CHQ Building, one of the last remaining examples of Georgian industrial design left in Dublin. For many decades it was the largest building in Dublin. Dublin's docks outside our door also served as a first departure point for many Irish emigrants through the centuries. Thank you for taking the time to review us, we really appreciate your precious feedback and sincere recommendation. Kind Regards, Lucile, The EPIC Team
