The Famine Ship Museum Jeanie Johnston
Guided Tours now available
Take a guided tour of the Jeanie Johnston (a replica tall ship) and hear the story of the Irish famine and emigration in the 1800s. The story of the Jeanie Johnston brings to life the daunting experience of the millions of people who crossed the Atlantic seeking survival and hope in the "New World" of North America.
The tour conveys a deep sense of history and will to be a memorable experience for all who come on board. In addition, visitors have the opportunity to marvel at the skill, ingenuity and craftwork involved in re-creating this genuine replica of a wooden tall ship, one of the last of its type to sail the Atlantic in the 19th Century.
The tours of up to one hour duration commence at 11am with the last being at 4pm (summertime hours). Meet your guide at the chq building where the tour commences and on then to the Jeanie Johnston which is docked just a few metres away down the quay. Following the visit to the ship, the tour concludes at the famine statues on Custom House Quay.
