Dublin: Jeanie Johnston Tallship Emigrant Experience

4. Dublin: Jeanie Johnston Tallship Emigrant Experience

Take a guided tour of the Jeanie Johnston tallship in Dublin’s Custom House Quay, and learn about the experiences of Irish emigrants in the 19th century. Hear about the daunting transatlantic passage they took, full of hope and desperate to escape the hardship in Ireland during the years of famine. Daily tours take place on board the ship, located downriver from the International Financial Services Centre and across the road from Jury’s Inn Hotel. Once on board, you will be transported back in time 150 years and more to join the poverty stricken Irish emigrants as they boarded the sturdy ship for the difficult voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the New World. Descend to the dimly-lit quarters below deck to see the grim realities that faced the passengers. In extremely cramped conditions, up to 250 frightened people were abruptly thrown together, completely unfamiliar with the conditions they would face on their sea passage. Life-sized figures in the museum below deck are based on actual passengers who sailed, from the 15 year old girl (Margaret Conway) traveling with her 12 year old brother, to the father of 11 (James Stack) whose livelihood was ruined by the famine. Back on deck, marvel at the ingenuity and craftwork involved in re-creating this genuine replica of a wooden tallship, one of the last of its type to sail the Atlantic in the 19th century. After the tour, you are free to visit the Famine Memorial Statues, located close by on Custom House Quay.

I opened my app and found the code, but what I needed was a QR code. They said it was sent by email. Since I had made the reservation two or three weeks before, I had trouble finding any email. They very kindly took pictures of the reservation on my phone app and gave me tickets. My husband, son, and I enjoyed the whole 90-minute tour on the top of the bus on the most beautiful day with mostly blue sky. The driver was a wonderful storyteller with a calming voice. We thanked him very much on the way out, and asked him how he could talk constantly for 90 minutes and still keep his voice. He joked that when he goes home at night, he doesn't speak at all. A good laugh. Later I discovered that the email with the QR code came just the day before our tour. I've been so busy sightseeing, I haven't looked at email that much. Perhaps the driver/ticket person could know this, and tell tourists to look for an email that just came the day before.

Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Dublin that hasn’t before OR wants to visit the main sites and save some money doing so. Was really easy to download the app with the QR code. All places we visited recognised the code immediately, no issues ever. Will even purchase the Dublin Pass again because there was so much included that we didn’t get to in the week we were here.

Wenn man wirklich viel von Dublin sehen will und dabei Geld sparen will ist der GoCity Pass gut geeignet. Die voraus Buchungen waren kein Problem. Es geht alles digital und man bekommt darin alle nötigen Informationen. Das WaxMuseum ist eine Enttäuschung.

Informative, fun, and a good way to get around for the day

Lovely, informative tour. Driver, Paul was excellent
