Get Curious on the Shore

Due to inclement weather, Get Curious on the Shore has been cancelled for the afternoon of Saturday 15 October.

Join experts from Galway Atlantaquaria and CÚRAM on a seashore treasure hunt at Grattan Beach as we find animals that make glue, drill holes and shoot
stinging cells - note: no danger to humans!

Attendees receive a 25% discounted entry to the aquarium immediately after the workshop.

Please note children must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult.

​​Galway Atlantaquaria, National Aquarium of Ireland, seeks to present a comprehensive view of the world of water through clear and attractive displays, informed, helpful staff and exciting live presentations. This is achieved through accurately displaying aquatic life in a manner that reflects their natural habitats, providing an enjoyable and educational environment to learn about the diverse marine ecosystem of Ireland.

As Ireland's largest native species aquarium, we strive to ensure that a visit to us is original and full of wonder for visitors of all ages and abilities. We are delighted to be an accredited member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquarium (EAZA) and the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquarium (BIAZA).

CÚRAM is the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Medical Devices, based at NUI Galway. It is a national centre bringing together experts from Ireland's leading universities and research institutes. Researchers at CÚRAM are designing the next generation of medical devices to improve the quality of life for people suffering from chronic illnesses like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Parkinson’s disease. CÚRAM’s public engagement programme works to raise awareness of its research and the significant impact that Irish research has on healthcare in our society.
