Families with elementary-age children will find this amphibious Dublin duck tour hard to resist—as will anyone with a yen for Viking culture! By land, you’ll check off popular attractions like Mansion House, Christ Church Cathedral, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Dublin Castle; on water, you’ll cruise the Grand Canal Dock. That moment when your vehicle becomes a boat is simply spectacular.

What to Expect

Board your restored World War II-era landing craft in central Dublin, greet your entertaining guide, and don your Viking helmets to start the land portion of your tour.

Delve into Dublin’s rich history—not only its Viking past—as you pass attractions like Mansion House, home to Dublin’s Lord Mayor, elaborate St. Patrick’s Cathedral, 12th-century Christ Church Cathedral, and the turrets of Dublin Castle.

Roar like a Viking as your vehicle transforms into a boat and splashes into Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock for the watery part of your Dublin duck tour. Cruise back to your original departure point, exit the water, and bid your guide farewell.

Just OK, not really great for adults and a bit overpriced

Boyfriend and I did this tour the day we arrived in Dublin after an overnight flight. We figured we would be too jet-lagged to want to do anything too strenuous or do too much walking. This fit the bill on that, though overall not sure...More

I'm not sure if you mean you are concerned the company will cancel because it's raining, or that you don't want to attend because it's raining? I would suggest you speak to the company to check if the tour is still running... More

Yes they are similar to duck boats. I found them very safe and very secure. You are giving life jackets to wear when you enter the water, you are in the water for 5-10 minutes
