What You Can Expect

Dublin Liffey River Cruise

Dublin Liffey River Cruise

Choose a morning or afternoon cruise time and head to the Boardwalk in central Dublin to embark. Each cruise can accommodate up to 48 passengers on any sailing, and can also accommodate strollers and wheelchairs. Grab your seat in the glass-encased saloon and enjoy panoramic views of the river as you set off.

Drift in warmth and comfort along the banks of the famous River Liffey and discover Dublin’s ancient history. Indulge in traditional Irish storytelling from your local guide as you pass the famous Ha’penny Bridge and the magnificent Custom House, Gandon's masterpiece of Georgian architecture from the 1790s. View the striking statues of the Famine Memorial and the Jeanie Johnston ship that successfully carried 2500 emigrants to America and Canada in the 1800s, and learn about some of Dublin’s modern landmarks such as Trinity College and the Spire on O'Connell Street.

By the end of the tour, you’ll have a better understanding of Dublin’s origin story, from Viking settlement 1000 years ago and Oliver Cromwell’s epic 17th century invasion, to the developmental boom of the industrial revolution and the urban regeneration of Dublin’s Docklands.

Your 45-minute tour disembarks at the launch point.

We were very pleasantly surprised at how terrific this tour was. The tour guide Stephen was incredibly witty and knowledgeable and the views from the river were unique. We saw and learned about landmarks that we would not have otherwise known about. Genuinely worth the time and low price.

WONDERFUL! The boat was perfect and the tour guides were very knowledgeable. It could have been longer and shown us more stuff. I am not sure if there is a longer cruise, I would have booked it if there was.
