What You Can Expect

Dublin Dinner Cruise by Guinness Barge

Enjoy a romantic cruise down the Grand Canal in Dublin

Start your dining experience at Dublin’s Charlemont Place by stepping aboard the Guinness Canal Barge MV Cadhla – a barge modeled on a 1920s boat that was used to distribute Guinness around the capital.

Enjoy a pre-dinner drink from the onboard bar, and then take a seat at your table inside the boat’s lower saloon. Before setting off, your crew will entertain you with funny anecdotes, trivia and history about the city and, of course, the famous Guinness drink. Sit back and relax as the waiting staff serves your hearty Irish meal, and look out of the windows to see the city locks and sights of Dublin. Additional drinks can be ordered at your own expense throughout your meal.

After two hours gliding around the city’s historical canals, finish your cruise at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, the Grand Canal’s dockside theater.
