Climb aboard an all-weather 48-passenger river boat for a 45-minute cruise along the River Liffey in Dublin and see the city from the water.

Hear about the iconic Ha'penny Bridge and Gandon's masterpiece Custom House. Follow the story of Dublin’s Royal and Grand Canals, and see where Oliver Cromwell landed in 1649. Discover how Captain William Bligh surveyed Dublin Bay in 1800, and how much of present day Dublin now sits on reclaimed land, including Trinity College and the Spire in O'Connell Street.

Fantastic insight in to the city. Jerry and Tony were both very funny and factual at the same time. Really gave us a head start to our trip in Dublin!

We thought it was going to be okay but it was so interesting and you learn so much! One of my favourite activities we did in Dublin

Lively and entertaining commentary with lots of local history from a very knowledgable guide. Covered boat with comfy seats.

A very fun experience to take. The guides were great and covered the long history of Dublin in short time.

Lots of fun, along with the information. Love the Irish banter.
