Voted one of TripAdvisor's Top 5 Irish Museums, EPIC is the world’s only fully digital museum. The 20 interactive galleries tell the fascinating stories of over 300 Irish people, past and present, and relive some of the greatest achievements and accomplishments in the world of sport, music, art, culture, politics, food, fashion, and science.

EPIC also houses a state-of-the-art genealogy centre, the Irish Family History Centre, to help visitors explore their Irish ancestry. During a visit earlier this year, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau discovered his Irish roots, dating from the 17th century. Through his mother, Margaret Sinclair, Mr. Trudeau is a direct descendant of the Bernard family from Bandon, County Cork.

“Really, EPIC is for anyone with an interest in Ireland and its stories. It’s an ideal first stop for people visiting Dublin to get an insight into Irish people and culture, and to get a sense of where we came from,” says Mannion.
