25 Best Things to Do in Dublin, Ireland

Attraction Spotlight: EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum

When looking into the history and heritage of any country, historians, researchers, and casual observers alike have a habit of focusing on its people and the things they achieved and accomplished, but we tend to focus mainly on what they did in their own homeland and the successes they accumulated in their native towns and cities.

But what about those who had the courage and independence to emigrate from their own lands, heading off to new places to see the world and seek better lives elsewhere? These people often have the most fascinating stories to tell and can achieve extraordinary things, and for an example of this, we need look no further than the Irish.

Estimates state that around 80 million people all over the globe have some form of Irish ancestry, with close to 40 million Americans, for example, having Irish as their primary ethnicity. Around 10 million people are estimated to have emigrated from Ireland over the years, heading off to Great Britain, the United States, and all over the globe.

These people left Ireland for many different reasons, and many of them have had an extraordinary impact on the world, shaping life as we know it. You can discover more about them, learning why they left, where they went, what they did, and how their actions have impacted us all, by visiting The Irish Emigration Museum in Dublin.
