EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, located in Dublin's Docklands, covers the history of the Irish diaspora and emigration to other countries. It was designed by the London-based design firm Event Communications, and was voted as "Europe's Leading Tourist Attraction" at the 2019, 2020 and 2021 World Travel Awards.
EPIC is a privately owned museum, founded by Neville Isdell, former chairman and chief executive of The Coca-Cola Company, who was born in County Down. During 2015, an advisory group was assembled to consult on the development of EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum. In May 2016, EPIC was officially opened by former President of Ireland Mary Robinson.

This is a must see. Of all the venues we visited in Dublin, this was our favourite. It is an absolutely fascinating look at emigration throughout Ireland’s history. It covers many topics, such as the reasons why, famous people, cultural impact around the world, and contributions in science, literature, and the arts. The exhibits were superb, with a wide range of audio, visual, and interactive pieces. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout. It is possibly our favourite museum out of all we have visited in our travels.

Actually a lot more enjoyable than I expected! Superb use of digital technology to present the stories of Irish emigrants. Kids really enjoyed it, and learned quite a bit. Sometimes a little "twee" in places; you could see an Irish-American audience being clearly targeted. Equally it wasn't scared to show that home made problems were also drivers of emigration. (Women's and LGBT rights for example.) Docking one star for charging €1 for audio guides. It's a token fee, but given it's pricey enough for admission as it is, I would think it makes more sense to simply include this in the price of admission?

A most informative and moving experience. Some exhibits brought me to tears. Some made me laugh. All made me appreciate this part of Irish history. The exhibits themselves were so well presented. So glad I visited EPIC. Would certainly recommend anyone to visit EPIC when in Dublin.

Excellent and interesting new museum about Irish immigration to other countries. Very visual presentation of the related history and culture, with a lot of personal stories about reasons for leaving Ireland. Visitors are given a passport in which they can collect stamps from various rooms. Free storage for bags and toilets at entrance. Well worth high ratings and ticket price.

This is the best museum I've ever been to. Very tastefully done. The museum opens with the more heavy sad elements of the migration and its causes. The subsequent halls all explore a different element of migration. All of the 20 or so rooms have different kinds of interactive screens and other things that make it very engaging. Wish I would have had more time. This museum is very much worth it.

One of the best museums we've ever been too. A museum about emigration doesn't sound like an exciting proposition, but it's more about every aspect of Irish life, culture, contribution to society and history. Our kids loved it which was helped by an Easter scavenger hunt.
