Step Aboard the Jeanie Johnston…

…And get a sense of the experience of the millions of people who crossed the Atlantic Ocean in tall ships, seeking survival and hope in the “New World”.

The original Jeanie Johnston made 16 emigrant journeys to North America between 1847 and 1855, carrying over 2,500 people with no loss of life.

The ship is an authentic replica, built in Tralee, Co. Kerry. It has sailed to North America and to various ports in Europe.

Our expert guides bring history to life in a fascinating 50 minute tour of this beautiful ship. It is one of Dublin’s most popular attractions.

The dimly-lit quarters below deck show vividly what the journey was like for emigrants. Our expert guides tell the story of emigration through actual passengers who sailed on the ship. From the 15 year old girl (Margaret Conway) travelling only with her 12 year old brother, to the father of 11 (James Stack) whose livelihood had been ruined by the famine…hear the inspiring stories of human determination to overcome adversity and make a better life.
