Dublin Bay UNESCO Biosphere Discovery Centre

Closes 31 Jan 2020

Opened 25 Nov 2019

Overview

Dublin City Council is continuing with the design and planning development for an exciting project to build the UNESCO Dublin Bay Discovery Centre in the heart of the UNESCO Biosphere on Bull Island. An ambitious yet sensitive design that creates a powerful place for discovery and learning the Centre will illustrate and interpret Bull Island, Dublin Bay, the world network of Biosphere Regions and global climate issues.

It is the ambition of Dublin City Council that the Discovery Centre will be the genesis for the resolution of the management issues in the nature reserve and Dublin Bay as well as inspiring the values of UNESCO in promoting global citizenship.

Uniquely, the Discovery Centre will provide opportunity to people of all abilities in society who heretofore could not access the dunes and beach to visit the Nature Reserve and gain an understanding of the intricate terrestrial and marine ecosystems that make the Bull Island and Dublin Bay such a special place.  The Discovery Centre will also act as a ‘gateway’ to the Nature Reserve and clearly signify the importance of the Nature Reserve as a wilderness that must be respected.
