Epic - The Irish Emigration Museum
Winner of Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction at the World Travel Awards 2019, 2020, and 2021.
You won’t find leprechauns or pots of gold there, but you will 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.
You’ll find out why over 10 million people left this island, where they went and what they brought with them. Uncover stories of adventure, adversity and triumph, as you engage with history in 20 interactive galleries.
EPIC is located in The CHQ Building, a beautifully restored 200-year-old Georgian warehouse that stands proudly on the banks of the Liffey and is established as an attractive recreation, retail, food and events hub in Dublin city centre.
It is also surrounded by other cultural attractions like the Famine Memorial Sculptures, Jeanie Johnston Famine Ship, The Custom House, Dublin Convention Centre, and more in the historic Dublin Docklands area.
After a visit to EPIC, go deeper and explore your own connection to Irish history at the IFHC. The Irish Family History Centre is also located in the CHQ building and offers visitors a chance to connect with their Irish ancestry.
