What to Expect

This tour sails between Dublin City (departure from Sir John Rogerson’s Quay), Dun Laoghaire’s East Pier, and Howth’s West Pier seasonally seven days a week.

Cruise from the city center in Dublin south to the charming seaside town of Dun Laoghaire. During the journey, see Dublin landmarks including the Poolbeg Lighthouse, Dalkey Island, and the wildlife reserve at Bull Island.

Alternatively, you can sail from Dun Laoghaire to Dublin’s city center, or from the historic fishing village of Howth to Dun Laoghaire. Howth is known for its quality seafood restaurants and for its walking paths along the dramatic sea cliffs.

The boat has a full bar on board for enjoying a drink while cruising by Joyce’s Martello Tower and the Baily Lighthouse.
