- View as map
After its renovation, the ‘Box on the Docks’ reopens its doors and offers a place to learn about the heritage of Ireland's waterways or find out what to do on them.
The Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre is a gateway to the waterways floating on the water of the Grand Canal Basin.
Inside the centre you will find hands on activities including demonstrating driving a barge and an interactive quiz testing your knowledge of Ireland’s Waterways.
The Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre also provide advice guides, maps and charts for those planning on using the waterways and the activities around them.
The location on the water, in the city and its architectural structure, makes the centre popular to hire for exhibitions, launches, photo shoots and events.
