If you're either a maritime history buff and/or fascinated with your own Celtic ancestral roots (both of the above apply to me), you'll love the Jeanie Johnston tour. This vessel is an impressive and accurate replica of the only Irish famine ship to never lose a single passenger (an impressive feat, given the limitations of technology and medical science at the time) during her multiple journeys to America subsequent to the 1846 potato famine Led by a friendly and superbly knowledgeable tour guide (whose names escapes me at the moment, sorry), the wax figures are amazingly lifelike (worthy of Hollywood's Movieland Wax Museum), and the decks & rigging will appeal to anybody who has spend time working on ships or docks. Located on the picturesque Grand Quay (Canal) a convenient distance from the historic Custom House.
