The National Famine Way is a digitally and physically waymarked 167km walking trail that connects the National Famine Museum in Strokestown Park, Co.

It allows walkers to follow in the footsteps of the 1,490 tenants who were forced to emigrate from Strokestown to Canada on some of the worst of the coffin ships during the summer of 1847.
