Fantastic Afternoon spent at Ardnacrusha Power Station

I pass the ESB Power Station at Ardnacrusha most days but I only finally got around to visiting today. I booked online on Friday for myself and my 10 year old son (who was thrilled to be given a hard hat and high vis jacket).
We loved every minute of the tour which is very well laid out with videos telling the history of the plant from the early days of the Irish Free State along with interactive videos for children, the well preserved artifacts on display, seeing the enormous Turbine hall and the old control room with the wax dummy. I would visit again as it is the type of tour where you would learn more about the history of the Power Station with every visit. The sheer scale of the plant took my breath away and I would recommend anyone visiting Limerick or County Clare to include a visit to the Power Station in your itinerary (and it is free!) Thanks to our very knowledgeable guide Ian, who patiently answered all our questions!

Great 90min tour of this hydro electric Dam....and it’s free, but you must book online

Firstly this tour only runs in the summer months and only between 9 and 5 Monday to Friday. You can search esb tours ardnacrusha and you will get a link to their site. The tours are free. 3 local girls gave the tour after a brief safety induction. You get to walk around most of the site (with your hard hats , glasses and hi-vis vests). Just enough information without getting too technical. Loads to see and do and genuinely interesting for all ages. Not suitable for prams or wheelchairs and there are 2 flights of stairs (50 plus steps) to be considered. Approx 1/3 of the tour is outside but they provide umbrellas if needed. Very interesting and loads of photo ops.
