EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is a state-of-the-art interactive experience located in the beautiful vaults of the 1820 Custom House Quarter building in Dublin’s Docklands, the original departure point for so many of Ireland’s emigrants. It will inspire and guide you on a journey to discover the stories of Irish emigration around the world, from early times to the modern day. 

Over the centuries, some 10 million people have left the island of Ireland. At EPIC you can step through 20 themed galleries to find out why people left, see how they influenced the world they found, and experience the connection between their descendants and Ireland today. Immerse yourself in the stories of some of the most remarkable tales of sacrifice, endurance, adventure, and discovery the world has ever known. EPIC brings these amazing stories to life in a unique and spectacular way.

The story will be told using innovative techniques and cutting-edge interactive technologies in combination with more traditional photographic, film, sound recordings and historic objects.

Discover how Irish people have contributed and influenced world culture including Billy the Kid, Charles De Gaulle and Grace Kelly.

Used the discount tickets from Sunday World 2- for price of 1. Made a huge difference as saved €16. At this price it was fantastic value. They have done an amazing job with the place, it looks fantastic, technology is easy to use and works well and it was a very enjoyable couple of hours. Some of the stories, people and achievements are amazing. More information and detail on causes of emigration e.g famine in 1850's and economics in 2010's would help frame the stories. We went without kids (woo hoo) but I think they would enjoy it.
