The National SEA LIFE Centre is one of Ireland’s largest Marine and Freshwater Zoos and the only aquarium on the East Coast of Ireland. The aquarium on the Seafront in Bray is a perfect family fun day out!
Sea Life centre is completely indoors making it a perfect all-weather activity. Having responsibility for the welfare and well-being of over 1100 underwater animals. Are you a Shark lover, a Seahorse fancier or a Clownfish groupie? Perhaps it’s the mysterious Moon Jellyfish or the clever common Octopus that you love the most? Maybe you simply can’t decide! Here at SEA LIFE Bray you can make up your mind and see them all – from the curious and the rescued to the rare and the enigmatic. And you’ll be able to get closer to them than ever before.
The team here at SEA LIFE is passionate about promoting and advancing the cause of the creatures of our oceans and rivers and their habitats. We engage in advocacy for conservation legislation, campaign for sustainable fishery policies, the breeding of endangered species, and cooperation with other like-minded organisations. In keeping with our message – BREED, RESCUE, PROTECT – we’ve developed a system of care and best-practice animal husbandry that draws on decades of collective experience from our marine biologists.
With 30 displays, a kids quiz trail, a colouring table, an indoor play area for younger children, and hourly public feeds of our animals, you won’t get bored.
