Go beyond the stereotypes at EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum

You won’t find leprechauns or pots of gold here, but you’ll discover that what it means to be Irish expands far beyond the borders of Ireland through the stories of Irish emigrants who became scientists, politicians, poets, artists and even outlaws all over the world. Discover Ireland from the outside in and find out why saying “I’m Irish” is one of the biggest conversation starters, no matter where you are.

The best museum I've ever been to...

"This is not a classic museum, it is a museum experience. It is very interactive and so is great for kids. You can take in as much information in as much time as you would like."

Amazing!

"This was nothing like i expected. I had seen pictures of others peoples visits but nothing tops actually seeing it in person. Very informative, very interactive!"

Best thing to do in Dublin!

"Anyone that is visiting Ireland must go to Dublin to visit the EPIC museum, it’s a self guided museum where you walk through different sections and learn all about Irish history and culture."

Catherine F, United Kingdom 

A Unique and Fascinating Museum

"This museum deserves all the awards it’s won. A visually entertaining, sophisticated interactive display with a wealth of information on how, where and why the Irish emigrated."

Janet H, Sydney, Australia  

The best museum I have ever visited...

"As you walk from one interactive room to the next, Ireland’s history unfolds before your eyes. Each room takes you through Ireland’s rich tapestry of history. An interesting, thought provoking journey. Highly recommended."

There have been many Irish adventurers throughout history, including Caribbean pirate queen Anne Bonny. Born in Kinsale in 1690s, Bonny was rather rebellious and became one of the most famous female pirates of all time.
