The Waterways Ireland Visitors Centre is located on the waters of Grand Canal Basin. Access is by footbridge off the Grand Canal Quay. The offices are on the first floor of the building.
The building is acclaimed for it's architectural merit, is built on water and accessed by way of a footbridge from the quay wall. Built in 1993, it was designed and built to represent a nautical theme- the round windows, the open aspect of the gaurdrails and the wooden decking of the walkway suggest this theme. The floor level windows give the impression that the building is moving through water when the water is viewed through them.
