Visitor Centre on Dublin Docklands

The Central Bank of Ireland Visitor Centre, located in its North Wall Quay headquarters, offers visitors a glimpse into the unique work and history of the Central Bank suitable for all ages.  Access to the Visitor Centre is free and both individual and group visitors are welcome.  

The Visitor Centre is currently hosting two exhibitions.  

Pounds, Shillings and Independence explores the birth of Ireland's first modern currency after independance.  Visitors can discover the origins and design of the iconic Series A and Ploughman banknotes, and view unique 3D printed replicas of the original coin design submissions.
75 Years of Change – The Story of the Central Bank of Ireland is an exciting new exhibition open to the public to mark our 75th anniversary, and takes you on a journey of discovery from the early history of the Central Bank right through to the present day.
