You won’t find leprechauns or pots of gold here, but you’ll discover that what it means to be Irish expands far beyond the borders of Ireland through the stories of Irish emigrants who became scientists, politicians, poets, artists and even outlaws all over the world. If you're one of the 70 million people worldwide that claim Irish heritage and ancestry, this museum will feel like the start of a homecoming, connecting you and your story to so many others.
At EPIC, which was recently awarded Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction at the World Travel Awards (2019 & 2020), discover Ireland from the outside in and find out why saying “I’m Irish” is one of the biggest conversation starters, no matter where you are. EPIC tells the moving and unforgettable stories of those who left the island of Ireland, and how they influenced and shaped the world. EPIC embraces the past and the future with 1,500 years of Irish history and culture housed in its atmospheric vaults.
