What You Can Expect

Dublin Viking Duck Tour

See famous sights such as Dublin Castle on your duck tour!

Meet your guide near St Stephens Green in central Dublin, and set off on your sightseeing adventure by ‘duck’ — an amphibious remodeled war craft that doubles up as a river boat. Put on your Viking helmet and then relax aboard your eye-catching mode of transport while listening to your guide’s funny anecdotes about the city.

Hear trivia about the city from its Viking days through to medieval times and the Georgian period, and discover fun facts about some of the city highlights that are taken in on the land-based past of your tour. See Mansion House, the official residence of the Lord Mayor of Dublin, and have your camera ready to capture big-name sights such as Christ Church Cathedral and St Patrick’s Cathedral with its elaborate Gothic façade.

Your guide will encourage everyone on board to join in with the commentary by giving pantomime-style Viking roars as you travel through town. Practice your roars on unsuspecting passers-by and laugh along with other tricks that your guide might want to play!

After seeing the sights from land, prepare for a splash as you enter the water of Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock, and cruise back along the waterway to the start point. Step back onto dry land near St Stephen’s Green, and bid a fond farewell to your guide.

We did the Dublin Viking Duck Tour 2 hours after landing from the US to help us push through jet lag WORTH IT! This tour is funny, quick, witty, and provides a comfortable way to learn about Ireland and Dublin history by both land and sea. Enjoy wearing a Viking helmet and yelling/roaring at others. We went as honeymooners and were surrounded by groups of all ages, including several families. It was truly fun! It was recommended to me by a Dublin-native! Glad we booked it!
