The Irish Emigration Museum
EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is an interactive journey about how a small island made a big impact on the world. It is located in the CHQ building at one of Dublin’s most historic locations by the banks of the River Liffey in Dublin’s Docklands, the original departure point for so many of Ireland’s emigrants. See Ireland from the outside in through the stories of the men and women who left and the Irish culture they brought with them. To truly understand what it means to be Irish, you need to discover how Ireland has influenced the world. The touchscreen technology in the museum makes the EPIC experience an accessible, fun and educational way for visitors to learn about Irish history, culture and people. Visitors can also discover their own family story at the onsite genealogy centre. Described as one of Ireland’s National Treasures, EPIC was named Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction in the 2019 World Travel Awards. It is wheelchair accessible and buggy and child friendly.
