Key Event Information

Join the team on Culture Night, Friday 20th September, for an after dark animated tour of Old Cork Waterworks.

It is curious to reflect that Cork, a merchant city surrounded by water, might once have thirsted for fresh water to drink. And that the solution came from a “little republic”, to be found just a short walk from the city centre. For this is a lesser told story, a behind-the-scenes secret: yet an essential ingredient to the prosperity of Cork City during Victorian times. And so the story keeps flowing, as does the Old Cork Waterworks with exhibits looking to the future in a city built on water in more ways than one.

Culture Night tours commence at 5.00pm and run every 30 minutes.  Please note Culture Night tours of the engine and boiler rooms are limited to 20 persons with advance booking recommended. To book conatct 021 4941500 or email lifetimelab@corkcity.ie
