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.
