On a Sunday in mid August we did the City centre to Howth trip, via Dun Laoghaire. Going down river past the port and under the East Link bridge was wonderful. This year they have guides on board at weekends, giving commentary on the history of Dublin Bay, and its wildlife...a really excellent addition (and having experienced this, I really... More

At the end of the west pier at Howth, the kids were full of questions about the size, speed and facilities on the boat as we boarded the gangplank. I was surprised to find a decent sized boat with loads of seats below deck along with a small shop. We opted for the 1 hour trip around the small island... More

We had a nice trip from Dunlaoghaire to bull island and back. Where has our Irish blarney gone ? Have had many such trips in Cork / Kerry which entertain the tourists with music, jokes , singing and loads of local focloir. This was rather dull with a small amount of pre-recorded commentary. So not the best overall.
