Tours and Tickets by The Old Liffey Ferry
The historic Old Liffey Ferry was once used to transport dock workers in the late 20th Century from their place of living on one side of the river in the local maritime villages there, to the busy port of Dublin on the other side of the river. Our tour offers passengers the chance to experience the history first hand. Our guides are all trained in-house and possess a natural love of the history of the ferry, the Port, the River, the City and those who have called it home throughout the years.

This was an excellent trip. Jimmy explained what all we were seeing as we were going out and coming back in. He was very interesting and informative in a very fun way. I would highly recommend putting this on your to do list while in Dublin. Thank you Jimmy and Dave!

Good way to experience the river liffey (albeit short). I think this is pitched as a comuter service but grand for a short trip and only 2 euro
