Jeanie Johnston Tallship and Famine museum.
Our very own Jeanie Johnston will be open for tours all weekend
From the 23rd to the 26th of August Dublin will play host to a fleet of some of the most beautiful ships ever to grace the seas!
The Story of a proud Irish Emigrant Ship
A step aboard the Jeanie Johnston is a step towards understanding the daunting experience of the millions of people who crossed the Atlantic seeking survival and hope in the "New World" of North America. Its to experience the fear of the unknown ahead, the flight from poverty and famine, the pain of separation from family, and the challenge of a 3,000 mile voyage braving gales and harsh seas.
Jeanie Johnston is docked at Custom House Quay in Dublin's city centre and is an accurate replica of the original ship which sailed between Tralee in Co. Kerry and North America between 1847 and 1855. The ship is OPEN FOR VISITORS with guided tours being conducted daily.
A tour of the re-created Jeanie Johnston enables visitors to see what it was like on board a wooden tall ship during the Famine era. The tour will convey a deep sense of history and will to be a memorable experience for all who come on board.
With all of these magnificent vessels in town don't forget to come and visit our very own Jeanie Johnston!
During the Tallships Festival the Jeanie Johnston will be open to the Public Free of Charge.
The ship will be open for viewing from 1000 until 1700 (Last entry)
Entry to the vessel will be on a first come first served basis.
Complimentary visits to the Jeanie Johnston are kindly sponsored by the Dublin Docklands Development Authority
