National Famine Museum

National Famine
Museum

In 2022, visit the re-imagined National Famine Museum to uncover the story and learn about the greatest national disaster in Ireland’s history. This newly developed, state-of-the-art  Museum opens in late spring 2022.   Learn more here.

Strokestown Park is a place of great beauty and a partaker in a national tragedy. 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.
