“Class trip!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Took a group of students on a very well structured trip. It was very appropriate with great links to the curriculum. Very impressed with the two tour guides who were extremely knowledgable and helpful even throwing in some Gaeilge. Children learnt a lot and was very hands on! Thanks so much for a great day.

Reviewed 5 June 2014

We took a third class on a school tour. Very enjoyable. Great tour guides and beautiful weather. Most of the time was spent outside learning about canals, rivers places of interest etc.

“Unknown but a nice little find in Grand Canal Dock”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

There are no markings on the building inviting people in, but the entrance is just past the Alto Vetro building (with a barber and The Art of Coffee at street level). We were the only ones inside, but it's a beautiful space on the water with very interesting information about Ireland's waterways (we didn't know the canal we were on actually connects all the way through Ireland), and lovely staff. There is an interactive quiz on a big screen in the corner that I imagine kids would enjoy. There's also a lot of visitor information pamphlets and some maps. A stroll around the Grand Canal outer basin is also very nice.

Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback. We have a new range of tours for 2014 and are working hard to improve our profile. It did probably mean that you got more attention though - so that's a good thing!
Thanks again

“College Visit To Waterways Ireland”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We decided to visit on a college trip and proved extremely helpful by giving use brochures and magazines . Our tour guide had a real passion for Irelands waterways and represent our rivers and canals with pride . if you like history it has a back drop of the famous 1916,s Bolands Mills it in a vibrant and colourful spot along the canal. Its definitely worth a trip and I would go again !
