About the event

Looking for an exciting and informative experience? Why not visit Ireland's largest river hydroelectric scheme at Ardnacrusha.

Following the phenomenal interest in last year’s tours, Ardnacrusha Power Station will again open this summer and are inviting the public to visit and explore one of Ireland's greatest engineering developments at Ardnacrusha, Co Clare.

Everyone is welcome to the Ardnacrusha Experience at the newly refurbished visitors’ centre before going out on site to view the impressive headrace canal, locks and tailrace. Once inside the station, the living heritage of Shannon Scheme is brought to life through a series of animations which celebrate the history and impact of this iconic project. Visitors are given access to the very heart of the station with unique views of the turbine hall and a visit to the original control room.

Public tours are available daily (Monday to Friday) from July 1st to September 13th 2019 at a range of time-slots starting at 9.30am with the last tour starting at 3.30pm.  These guided tours can accommodate groups of up to 30 people and run for approximately 90 minutes.


Admission is free and all are welcome.  Advance booking is however required and should be made using the link provided.
