National Famine Way
An adventurous 165 km cross country trail that mostly follows the Royal Canal as it weaves through country lanes, villages, towns and city - can be done in sections over time or all at once - as you choose. Follow the story of Strokestown’s Famine Emigrants as our interactive bronze shoe sculptures creates a thought provoking experience, on this commemorative cross country walk. The trail is topped and tailed by two iconic museums – “The National Famine Museum” at Strokestown Park and “The Jeanie Johnston Famine Ship” / “ EPIC - Irish Emigration Museum” at the Dublin end.
