Digital museum Epic Ireland has recorded 80,000 visitors in its first year of operation, and expects that number to grow to between 120,000 and 150,000 in its second full year.

The museum has also contributed to a 25 per cent growth in footfall at the CHQ building in Dublin’s docklands, where it is located, over the same period according to the site’s chief executive Mervyn Greene.
