Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship and Famine Museum Tours

One of the most popular attractions in Dublin, the Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship and Famine Museum is dedicated to the Great Famine of 1845 to 1852, when over 1 million Irish people fled their devastated homeland in search of a new life in North America.

The Jeanie Johnston was one of the last “coffin ships” to sail the Irish across the Atlantic. Despite harsh storms and squalorous ship conditions, not one of the 2,500 passengers died aboard the boat in its 16 journeys to the New World, a rare run of good luck credited to the compassion of its captain and doctor.

On a one-hour guided tour of the replica ship, learn about the catastrophic potato blight and how the Great Famine affected Ireland and beyond. As you wander the dimly-lit cabins, get a sense of how hard ship life must have been at a time when four adults would have shared one six-foot square bare bunk. And on the lower deck, come up-close to the life-sized wax figures modeled on some of the passengers who made the terrifying two-month journey across the Atlantic, like 15-year-old Margaret Conway, who crossed 3,000 miles of stormy seas with just with her 12-year-old brother for company.

Practical Info

Close to the Connolly train station at Custom House Quay, there are up to five guided tours of the Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship and Famine Museum each day. Adult tickets cost €9, while children up to the age of 14 enter for €5.
