Epic the Irish Emigration Museum (EPIC) Tours

Epic the Irish Emigration Museum (EPIC)
Ireland has long been a country of emigrants, with around 70 million people across the globe claiming Irish heritage. Epic the Irish Immigration Museum (EPIC) offers an interactive look at the remarkable tales of Ireland’s emigrants, chronicling their journeys to pastures new, their lives in foreign lands, and the influence they have had on the wider world. 

The Basics
Epic the Irish Emigration Museum is a state-of-the-art interactive experience. Most visitors make their own way through 20 engaging, high-tech galleries, though hour-long guided tours do take place twice daily with spots allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Audio guides are also available for rent. 

Visitors can pre-purchase an admission ticket to the exhibition, or opt for a combination ticket that provides access to both EPIC and the Irish Family History Centre, a neighboring genealogy center, where visitors can trace their family ancestry. Dublin Pass holders can avail of free entry to Epic the Irish Emigration Museum.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Epic the Irish Emigration Museum is especially fascinating for anyone with Irish ancestry. 
  • Book tickets in advance during busier times of the year. 
  • The exhibition is wheelchair accessible. 

How to Get There
EPIC is located in the beautiful vaults of the CHQ building at Custom House Quay in Dublin’s Docklands, just north of the River Liffey. To get there, take the train to Connolly, Pearse, or Tara Street stations; the Luas Red Line tram to George’s Dock; or the bus (14,15, or 27) to Amiens Street/Connolly Station. 

When to Get There
The museum is busiest from June through September. Even then, the large facility ensures it rarely feels crowded. Go just after opening to beat the crowds. 

Learn More About the Irish Emigration Story
Ireland has experienced several upswings in emigration over the past 300 years, often due to periods of economic depression. The single greatest cause of Irish emigration was the Great Famine, a catastrophic event that devastated the country between 1845 and 1849. Learn more about the famine at the Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship and Famine Museum and the haunting Famine Memorial, a series of suffering, skeletal bronze figures—both within walking distance of EPIC. 
Address: The CHQ Building, Custom House Quay, Dublin, Ireland

Dublin City & Bay + Dublin pubs Bucket List & live Irish music private day tour

star-5
Can't decide between a Dublin city & bay private tour or Dublins world famous pubs & whiskey scene? Now you don't need to choose between the two! Enjoy an authentic Irish experience and exploration of Dublin city & bay followed by a selection of classic Dublin pubs, only the very best. Phenomenal Guinness, Irish craft beer, Irish whiskey and traditional Irish music. In addition to some of your classic Dublin sightseeing, I cover the heavyweight pieces of Irish history that still shape our character and the land itself today, namely 'an gorta mor' (the great hunger) and the 1916 Easter Rising and our Dublin pub culture that is unrivalled for its craic (fun). We will have plenty of fun along the way too! including some great Irish traditional music which tell stories of their very own. An executive taxi means we are permitted in bus lanes, so no sitting in traffic! Along the way, we'll stop for some 'soakage' aka good Irish food before you have beers ;) See you in Dublin. . Éamonn
