Epic Event Space

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum:

Located in the vaults of conservation-listed CHQ Building, one of Dublin’s most significant Georgian Industrial buildings.

Overlooking the River Liffey on Custom House Quay – where merchants once unloaded their cargo – we’re immersed in the bustle of daily activity, but offer calm and elegant spaces inside our carefully restored building.
