Did you know that the Titanic was built in the heart of Ireland? In fact, as a passenger group, the Irish outnumbered all other nationalities on board. The entire Month of March at the Titanic Museum Attraction salutes everything Irish from Gaelic folklore, music, singing and dancing. Discover and learn about Titanic’s Irish roots galore all this month at the Titanic Museum.
Fabled fairies living in Irish folklore and fantasy make Titanic their home! This year, Irish Fairy Fantasy cottages have taken root at the Titanic Museum and will remain visible to visitors during the attraction’s March tribute to the 187 Irish passengers and crew on Titanic.
While the wee builders remain invisible to humans, proof of their presence can be clearly seen in the enchanting, whimsical dwellings they’ve planted throughout the ship. No two are alike, each have their own name and unique features. However, the ones with realistic architectural elements still stand with one foot in reality and the other in a fairytale.Mary Kellogg-Joslyn, Titanic Museum President & COO
