Had a fantastic time. Jonathon was a brilliant guide. Have no experience as this was first time on a river but felt safe as houses. Looking forward to doing this again

Great way to see the riverside area without being distracted dodging people and traffic. They have lockers for your bags and give you a waterproof top, but recommend quick dry trousers if you have them for maximum comfort

We took the Sunday 3:00PM Music Tour. It was interesting enough to be Kayaking on the Liffey, but the added music tour made it much more interesting. Very reasonable charges, well prepared and polite hosts/guides on the trip. Pants got wet from water dripping off...More
