The Ardnacrusha Experience

As part of ESB’s 90th anniversary celebrations, Ardnacrusha Power Station was open for free guided tours during July and August 2017.

Unfortunately, DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, THESE TOURS ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED AND SPACES ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE. Thanks to all who visited our iconic station!

The 90-minute tour included a trip to the impressive canal and locks, as well as the very heart of the station with unique views of the turbine hall and a visit to the original control room.

The tour also incorporated our Living Archive room (see photos below) which featured artefacts, photos and original brochures from our collection at ESB Archives to show how ESB transformed the lives of everyone, everywhere in Ireland.
