Step aboard the Jeanie Johnston to a time during the Great Famine in Ireland (1845 to 1849). Take a guided tour and experience the story of a proud Irish Emigrant Ship.
Discover the daunting experience of the millions of Irish emigrants who crossed the Atlantic seeking survival and hope in the "New World" of North America. See how people experienced the fear of the unknown, 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 that sailed between Tralee in County Kerry and North America between 1847 and 1855.Take a guided tour of the re-created Jeanie Johnston and see what it was like on board a wooden tall ship during the Famine era. Gain a deep sense of history and a memorable experience in Ireland.Descend to the dimly-lit quarters below deck and see the grim realities that faced the passengers. In extremely cramped conditions, learn how up to 250 frightened people were abruptly thrown together. Almost all were probably unfamiliar with conditions on a sea passage, and the only common bond they were likely to have had was their burning desire to escape the ravages of famine.Guided tours take place daily at 11 AM, Noon, 2 PM, and 3 PM.
