Owner description: 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.

This is a must see along your historic journey in Dublin. A very humbling experience, brings an understanding to how our relatives endured so much for a better way of life.

I had wanted to visit this ship for years as I had been fortunate enough to witness the ship being constructed in Blennerville in Kerry some years back and was eager to visit it to see it in its full glory and it did not disappoint. It exceeded my expectations as to how magnificent she actually was. The tour of the ship is very interesting and quite harrowing as the guide retells the stories of families that sailed in similar ships to start a new life in America and the horrific conditions that they were subjected to on the ship in order to better themselves overseas. It is well worth a visit and Jeanie Johnston will impress both young and old.

Great stop if you want to learn more about the Irish famine and what happened to those who decided to emigrate. Our guide came out with some great stories.
