Owner description: The Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre is your Gateway to the Waterways floating on the water of the Grand Canal Basin. New for 2014: The weekly walking tour of the Grand Canal Dock takes place every Saturday at 11:30, booking is advised. The tour begins from the Visitor Centre and explores the Grand Canal Dock from its beginnings in the 18th century and how it changed the shape of Dublin. You can admire this fantastic mix of industrial and modern architecture, find out what life in the past was like living and working in Dublin's Docklands and discover how the canals played a consistent role in the history of the city's economic, social and cultural development.

“Closed museum”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2003

My family spent one week in a canal boat at The Grand Canal. That was very nice. Afterwards we went to Dublin for the weekend, and Saturday 14th, at about one o'clock, we found our way to The Waterways Museum.
That was a very dissapointing expirience to us all. Even if it was in the middle of the opening hours, the musem was closed. The reason we were given through the entance door was that some boys were swimming and diving inside the museum. I certainly hope that the boys had a good time, but is this the normal way to threat visitors at this museum?
