Irish Famine Exhibition

The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland's turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word ‘Famine' in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the ‘Famine' years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee.

The story boards display rare 19th century photographs, witness accounts, contemporary sketches as well as maps and statistical information. Experience the deeply moving story of the Irish Potato Famine, a catastrophic event in Irish History.

A 15 minute film with seating is included in the Exhibition and the average time spent by visitors is 1.25 hours.
