The National Rowing Centre or NRC is the epicentre of Irish rowing. It is here that our elite athletes train full time, where our annual championships are held, and where our national headquarters are.

The NRC is available to clubs for training and camps. Use of the centre must be pre-booked and the following charges will apply.

National Rowing Centre Accessibility

The road to the NRC is a gravel road. It is owned and maintained by Coillte. We are presently working with Coillte around the surfacing of the road in order to provide access to all members and participants.

The National Rowing Centre building, which is owned by Rowing Ireland is accessible for all those who has accessibility needs with a lift and specific services. The ramp bridge into the NRC has an uneven surface.
