After its modern renovation, the ‘Box on the Docks’ reopens its doors. Whether you want to learn about the heritage of Ireland's waterways or find out what to do on them, this is your one stop shop.
The Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre is your Gateway to the Waterways floating on the water of the Grand Canal Basin.
Daily walking tours of Grand Canal Docks are ran at 11.30am and 2.30pm.
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 unique location on the water, in the city and its architectural award winning structure makes the centre ideal to hire for exhibitions, launches, photo shoots and events.
