The good kind of waterworks

Are you a fan of Ireland’s only Victorian waterworks?

Now you have the comfort of booking in advance as the Old Cork Waterworks Experience has a new online booking platform.

The introduction of dedicated timeslots will offer certainty and reassurance to visitors and enhance the onsite experience.

Cork City Council’s Executive Scientist Mary Walsh said: “The comfort and safety of our visitors are always forefront in our minds. With limits on capacity and increased safety measures already in place, dedicated timeslots will offer further reassurance and enable visitors to plan well in advance. Our online booking facility will also enable Old Cork Waterworks Experience to partner with other city attractions and accommodation providers, which can only be positive for Cork as a holiday destination this summer.”

Dating back to Victorian times, Old Cork Waterworks Experience offers guided and self-guided tours that include access to the former boiler and engine houses. The site also has a coffee dock with outdoor seating, a scenic picnic area and a children’s playground, and the attraction is fully wheelchair accessible. It is open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm and Saturday-Sunday 10am-5pm.
