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.

Good tour with a history teacher for our guide. It was amazing that this ship was the only one not to lose anyone on the many voyages it carried out.

Beautifully Restored ship. There are guided tours, with a complete history. It sits in the River Liffey, with gang planks to get to it from the North Wall walk ways.

We had a lovely man (Ray perhaps) who showed us around and made the tour really lively and interesting. He even took a picture of us on the ship after. We loved it that much we agreed it was our highlight in Dublin!
