Old Cork Waterworks Experience

Following the most recent Government announcement on lifting of COVID-19 restrictions (April 29th 2021), Old Cork Waterworks Experience will reopen on Monday May 10th 2021.

Built to serve an empire and constructed during a time of rebellion, maritime trade and mass emigration, Old Cork Waterworks stands proud on the Cork hillside overlooking the River Lee commanding the western approaches to Cork City. Our renovated Victorian buildings offer a Visitor Experience, Primary Science education space, Corporate Hire and Conference facilities.

Lifetime Lab, on the banks of the River Lee, is a unique attraction for visitors of all ages with its modern interactive exhibition, themed playground, beautifully restored buildings and equipment and scenic views over the River Lee.
