We love recommending other things to do in Dublin besides our food tours to our customers. What we’re sharing today is an attraction we often mention as it’s a real part of Ireland’s immigration and indeed food history.

 

What?

It is a reproduction of the original Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship that was built in 1847 in Quebec city in Canada. Originally, the ship was meant for cargo, however it was turned into an emigrant shop during the Great Famine. The ship carried over 2,500 Irish people to North America.

Jeanie Johnston as well as being a reproduction of the original boat is also a little museum about it. During a 50 minute guided tour you will learn all about the history of the ship and of some of its passengers.
