reefLIVE Aquarium


We are bringing forward plans to develop a £10 million aquarium in the Titanic Quarter on behalf of reefLIVE Ltd.

A state-of-the-art attraction on the Queen’s Road opposite the Titanic Hotel, a short distance from the world’s number one visitor attraction, Titanic Belfast.

Once open the Aquarium will be the largest Ocean visitor attraction on the island of Ireland. We expect to welcome more than 300,000 people each year and help boost the length of each tourist visit to Northern Ireland.

The purpose of this website is to update you on these proposals, and seek your views on our vision for the reefLIVE Aquarium.



An aquarium for the 21st Century

The reefLIVE Belfast Aquarium will respond to the increase in public interest in marine life, and the environmental issues facing species and habitats off the shores of Britain and Ireland, and around the world.

We aim to wow visitors with a fresh approach to aquaria by using high quality live displays and build techniques to recreate international marine environments - coupled with cutting edge technology to create an immersive visitor experience.

reefLIVE aims to inspire and educate visitors about the marine environment and how it can and should be properly managed and conserved.

Subject to planning consent, construction will begin during 2020 and we hope to open to the public in Spring 2021.
