Slightly disappointing. We could only make the late afternoon trip and because of the tides only went one way. Felt that there was so much more to see and didn't get much historical information about the various landmarks. Nevertheless an enjoyable experience.
The organisation of tour was very good, as were the staff. However, there is simply not that much worth seeing in that area of the river, and visibility from the boat was not the best. Not worthwhile if you have a short time only in Dublin, but maybe if you have more time, or have done the other attractions.
Good tour great for spending an hour cruising, if you have nothing else to do. The crew was informative and entertaining. Not sure there is much to see along the Liffey river banks, when compared to other river cruises I've taken around the world. The scenery and the architecture seen on the cruise is not that exciting.
A different view from the water, not as impressive as expected. Staff were interactice and helpful.
Our tour was cancelled due to the Queen visiting. So I cannot say my rating is worth taking notice off.
We had pre booked this trip before going away. When we arrived to check in for the 11.30 boat we were told it was not running as it had broken down. We were informed that the next trip would be 2.15.
Although we had to change our plans for the day we arrived back at 1.45 and joined the queue .. We were informed the trip would start at 2.15 but at 2.45 when there was still no boat everyone started complaining.
It was a good job the weather was nice. ! The boat arrived around 2.55 .. The trip was ok but nothing special
Ok, nothing special though. Very quick- In hindsight probably not worth the
I guess I expected more from the cruise. It was short and not as interesting as I expected it to be.
The boat was in excellent condition and very clean.
It took forever at the ticket booth --- I already HAD my ticket
There wasn't much to see that couldn't be seen from the shore
Overall the cruise left a lot to be desired
Tour takes you further down river than any of the bus tours, but nothing great. If you have time, tour is ok, but not worth making it an important addition to Dublin things to do while visiting.
I enjoyed this tour but did not know that the river has tides and I hit low tide so we were way down with high walls on the sides! Try to do it when the tide is in. The tour itself was good.
It was just OK in my opinion, but I think that's personal taste. Definitely relaxing, just not my cup of tea - bit boring if I'm being honest. Good if you like history-type info - find out about buildings and stories about the banks of the river, or if you're a fan of Louis Walsh - his penthouse will be pointed out to you!
Unfortunately the tour didn't take place. We booked online but found out the next day there weren't tours planned for this week at all. We felt very betrayed! :(
This was a dreadful waste of time and money. There is absolutely NOTHING to see along the River Liffey. Viator should stop offering this tour.
disappointing as the walls are high and you are unable to see anything
The noise in the motor was also loud
I personally would not reconmmend this to anyone
This cruise is sort of a waste of time. Nice tour guide but we were only being shown the back of meaningless buildings. Save your 14 euros.
This is very unreliable due to the extreme tides on the River Liffey. They left thirty minutes before our scheduled departure, so we arranged the cruise for the next day. We showed up and since we were the only couple, they weren't going out due to lack of passengers. We wasted a lot of valuable time on this. Don't bother, it's just not worth it!
There is little to view and the tour guide was very poor. Much could have been told about the history of the Dublin slums that have now disappeared and it would be a precursor to what is now being laid. Our guide was more interested in telling us about the flat and recording studios of U2!
