Visitor Centre

​Waterways Ireland owns a multipurpose space in the Dublin Docklands, which operates as an Events Space. Applicants may wish to consider using the venue for exhibitions, displays, launches or press calls.

The Waterways Ireland Centre is a unique location in the city, floating on the waters of the Grand Canal basin this award-winning building is an impeccable fit for conferences and meetings.

The technological equipment provides many branding opportunities, whereas the architecture of the space; with its double height windows, lends itself to creative dressing for truly remarkable events.
