Welcome to the Exploris Aquarium in Portaferry, Northern Ireland

In this exciting family day out in Northern Ireland, you can dive into an underwater wonderland and discover the many creatures of the deep!

Take a journey through our many exhibits and come face to face with everything from majestic sharks to curious seals, playful otters to quirky penguins, and even a snappy dwarf caiman crocodile!

You can also check out the impressive Seal Sanctuary, where injured or abandoned seal pups are rescued by Exploris and are nursed back to health before their release back into the wild. It's an excellent way to see the effort that goes into conserving these adorable animals. Watching these seals happily play is enough to put a smile on just about anyone's face.

After a day of exploring, check out the on-site restaurant and gift shop, where you can grab a bite to eat or pick up a souvenir to remember your visit.

So come on down to Exploris Aquarium and discover a whole new world beneath the waves!
