The National SEA LIFE Centre on Bray’s seafront is swimming with fascinating marine and freshwater creatures, including Piranhas, Seahorses, and Ireland’s largest collection of Sharks.

This collection of over 90 species of underwater animals is displayed in a range of exciting exhibits, including ‘Rivers of the World’, ‘Seahorse Sanctuary’, ‘Nemo’s Kingdom’, ‘Shark Nursery’, ‘Lair of the Octopus’, ‘Caribbean Cove’ and ‘Tropical Shark Lagoon’.

With regular talks and feeds throughout the day, a visit to National SEALIFE Bray gives an informative and entertaining introduction to life beneath the waves, as well as an awareness of ecological and conservational threats to our Oceans.

Highlights include:
  • An interactive Rockpool where you can hold a crab and touch a starfish
  • Regular talks and feeding demonstrations throughout the day
  • Children's soft play area
  • A range of exciting exhibits
  • You can join the campaign and help to save the whales!
