Delve into Irish history on this tour of the Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship, a replica of a 19th century ship used to escape the Great Famine of Ireland.
Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship Museum Tour
Meet your guide at the scheduled time at the Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship, which is moored off Custom House Quay in Dublin. Climb aboard the living museum ready to delve deep into a period of history that marked Ireland forever.
During the 19th century, Ireland experienced once of the worst periods of famine in its history. During this time, a huge proportion of the population emigrated to the Americas to escape the starvation and disease that killed so many. The Jeanie Johnston was one of the ships that transported these people across the Atlantic.
Throughout your 50 minute tour, you'll learn the details of the Trans-Atlantic journeys made by these Irish emigrants. Exploring the small cabins below deck, you'll get goosebumps imagining the hundreds of people travelling on the ship.
What's more, the museum's lifesize figures allow you to discover the stories of some of the real life people who travelled aboard the Jeanie Johnston in search of a new life across the seas.
