ABOUT

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is Dublin’s 21st Century visitor experience showcasing the unique journey of the Irish people around the world through the ages. Centrally located on the banks of the River Liffey, and just a five minute stroll from Dublin’s main thoroughfare, O’Connell Street, Epic Ireland is located in the beautiful vaults of the iconic CHQ building, which dates from 1820.  This state-of-the-art visitor experience, designed by the multi-award winning team who developed the Titanic Belfast, tells the story of the Irish people’s dispersal throughout the world.  Following a path through 21 remarkable galleries, using cutting edge interactive technologies, visitors will explore the journey of a people through four thematic groups: starting with an introduction to migration and the arrivals and departures that shaped Ireland, and going on to explore why people left Ireland. The exhibition continues to bring insight into how the Irish influenced the world in politics, business, science, sports and the arts.  Finally, it shows where the Irish overseas are now and what they are doing in today’s highly connected world. This is the authentic and epic story of 10 million journeys and the roots of 70 million people that is both richly entertaining and informative.
