For residents and visitors alike, the Atlantic Ocean has a major influence on life in the West of Ireland.

 the Aquarium!
A hauntingly beautiful coastline etched out by the ebb and flow of countless tides ,temperate but fickle weather patterns carried ashore on salt-laden westerly winds; succulent seafood from clean, unpolluted waters; a colourful and sometimes tragic past in which humans pitted their wits against a merciless and unpredictable sea; a rich array of flora and fauna both below and above tide levels - all are part of the precious heritage that we celebrate at oceans alive.

Whatever your area of interest - natural history and ecology, commerce, history,folklore, or simply recreation - in all seasons and all types of weather Oceans Alive offers a truly memorable experience for the entire family.
