Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre
The Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre is a family friendly visitor attraction located on the waters of the Grand Canal Basin in Dublin. Hands on activities include navigating a canal lock system and an interactive quiz testing your knowledge of Ireland's waterways. We also provide advice, guides, maps and charts for those planning on using the waterways.
The unique location on the water, in the city and its architectural award winning structure makes the centre, affectionately known as the ‘box on the docks', ideal to hire for exhibitions, launches, photo shoots and events.
Opening hours: April to September: Wednesday to Sunday 10:00 - 6:00pm
