The National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park has been transformed with a €5 million investment via Fáilte Ireland and Westward Holdings Ltd in partnership with the Irish Heritage Trust and opens the doors in early July 2022 for visitors to enjoy a new state-of-the-art National Famine Museum, telling the complete story of the Great Famine for the first time.
The re-imagined National Famine Museum tells the complete story of the Great Famine in a compelling manner and explores the parallel lives of Strokestown Park’s aristocratic landlords and their tenants during this period. Visitors will have a truly immersive experience as the Museum breathtakingly takes local and national stories from this tragic period in Ireland’s past and brings them dramatically to life.
