Docklands, (County Dublin)

Not far from the Famine Memorial stands a magnificent three-masted ship, christened “Jeanie Johnston”. A replica of a three-masted ship that existed in the 19th century, this boat is now used as a museum, dedicated to the history of Irish emigration to the United States. A visit that’s well worthwhile!

Visit the Jeanie Johnston

The replica of a three-masted ship full of history

If you continue along the docks, you will undoubtedly come across the Jeanie Johnston, a fascinating replica of a Canadian three-masted ship, built in Quebec in 1847. The original ship would have enabled many Irish immigrants to reach America, as they fled en masse from the Great Famine in Ireland at the time.

This replica would have been made at the beginning of the 2000s, to take part in the start in sailing races. Then transformed into a school boat, the three-masted boat is now moored at the Dublin docks (in the Docks district). Converted into a real floating museum, it opens its doors every day to visitors, and thus allows them to discover a nice exhibition, dedicated to the Great Irish Famine, as well as to the history of emigration in Ireland. You will discover the history of the Jeanie Johnston, testimonies of the time from Irish immigrants, as well as many objects that belonged to the original boat.

A very nice visit, which should delight all apprentices, curious about Irish History!
