Galway Atlantaquaria, the national aquarium, presents
a comprehensive view of the world of water,
imaginatively recreating natural habitats,
from the seabed to local rivers
and lakes - even the city canals.
Presented in an attractive, entertaining layout,
it provides an enjoyable and educational environment
in which to learn about the diverse marine Eco-System
of Ireland. Uniquely amongst Irish aquariums, Atlantaquaria
features both freshwater and saltwater exhibits.
Children especially love the touch pools where they can handle live creatures like starfish and crabs.The deep sea experience features over 170 species of fish including conger eel, ray and lobster. Fun features include one which gives the visitor a fish eye view of a waterfall and a deep submarine vehicle where you can experience the feeling of being deep underwater.
