"FAMINE MEMORIAL" Famine Memorial Tip by hevbell

Famine Memorial, Dublin: 16 reviews and 36 photos


Alongside the River Liffey, just passed Customs House, is the Famine memorial dedicated to all those who lost their lives in the infamous Irish potato famine. At night it is lit up and the rake thin statues look quite eerie but definitely bring it home to you how people must have suffered during that time.
