105 Reviews

  • Location: Dublin, Ireland
  • Duration: 45 minutes (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2706LIFFEY
Drift down the River Liffey on a leisurely 45-minute cruise from the heart of Dublin. With a local guide providing professional commentary, your all-weather, purpose-built vessel can accommodate up to 48 passengers, offering maximum comfort and safety. The boat is wheel chair accessible and suitable for young and old alike.
Discover all aspects of the history of the River Liffey and of Dublin city itself, from the first arrival of the Vikings 1000 years ago, to the rapid development of the city during the 18th and 19th Centuries to become a major European capital, and of the subsequent decline and more recent redevelopment of Dublin's Docklands.

You will learn the story behind the iconic Ha'penny bridge as well as Gandon's masterpiece, the majestic Custom House. You will follow the story of Dublin's Royal and Grand Canals and see where Oliver Cromwell landed in 1649. You'll also hear how Captain William Bligh surveyed Dublin Bay in 1800. Learn of how much of present day Dublin now sits on reclaimed land, including Trinity College and the Spire in O'Connell Street.
