Traveling by water delivers a unique perspective on any city—and that’s especially true of Dublin, a city founded by Viking seafarers. Follow in the wake of the very first Dubliners as you paddle the River Liffey on this family-friendly Dublin kayak tour. Your dedicated instructor/guide ensures a trip that’s as safe as it’s fun—even for absolute beginners.
Greet your guide at the kayaking base in the heart of Dublin, and receive your lifejacket, paddle, and single or tandem kayak. Listen to paddling instructions and a safety briefing before you set off.
Your guide will identify some of Dublin’s best-known landmarks as you glide along the River Liffey. Look out for Irish favorites like Ha’penny Bridge, O’Connell Bridge, the Jeanie Johnston ship, and Custom House.
At the end of your kayak trip, return to base. After returning your equipment, change out of your wet clothes, retrieve any belongings you may have left in storage, and make your way to your next destination.
