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 selection of drinks from our on board bar (not included in ticket price), or simply take a seat at your table inside the boat’s lower dining saloon as we glide along one of Dublin’s historic waterways. Our welcoming crew will be at your disposal throughout the cruise so sit back and relax as they serve you a hearty Irish meal and look out of the windows to see the city locks and sights along the canal. There is an opportunity to explore the open top deck and watch the skipper skilfully operate the locks that are over 200 years old.

The food was great. Was expecting a little more out of the ride- we literally just went down the river a few blocks and back again.
