Using original archive sources and artefacts, the National Famine Museum tells you stories of tenants and landlords, of the human cost and the long-term impact. It takes you on a journey through hunger and eviction, migration and assisted emigration, tragic deaths and assassinations and gives you an insight into a cataclysmic event that changed Ireland forever. Together the house, museum and gardens embody and communicate over 300 years of Irish history.
We are delighted that the new, state-of-the-art National Famine Museum will open at Strokestown Park in 2022. Learn more here.
