The Waterways Ireland visitor centre offers a unique and informed perspective into the vast channels and tributaries of water which run throughout Dublin and wider Ireland. Insight into how man tamed and made use of these flowing waters, plus regular expeditions to the greatest examples within the country, comprise the program of events at the centre. A distinctly modern structure, the Waterways centre is fashioned in gleaming white with a small marina jetty suitable for boat stopovers alongside.
Tourists in Ireland who plan to ride the Liffey or other rivers, for instance upon a canal barge, will be impressed at the navigational equipment and knowhow on offer in great quantity within the Waterways visitor’s centre. Demonstrations of how to operate ships and barges, plus regularly departing walking tours that tell of Dublin’s history from a marine perspective, further enhance this intriguing establishment.
