The 45 min boat tours up and down the Liffey River and offers some of the best views of Dublin. Even good on a rainy day since the red boat is completely covered.
Our narrator Patrick was great and told us many interesting (and funny) stories.

Enjoyable 45 minute cruise from just east of O'Connell Street near the Ha'penny Bridge to the docklands area giving a fascinating look into Dublin's history.

Very knowledgeable guide, who was on his last day, who gave a fantastic commentary throughout answering questions and providing the historical background to the bridges and monuments along the Liffey.

Very good price for a family of five (€40). It's €30 for two adults and two children and, I think, €14 per adult if booked on the day.

There is limited space on the boat so book early and due to the stairs onto the boat not accessible for those with young children in prams nor wheelchair users.

We booked in advance as the boat gets full quick! A great tour of the River Liffey, very informative, the guide definitely knows his stuff. A different way to see the city of Dublin and learn some cool maritime facts. The boat is covered so even in wet weather you'll stay dry! There's no bar on board but the whole tour is only 45mins so you will survive ;-)

It was real pleasant to cruise along the Liffey River for 45 minutes and view the city from a different angle. The commentary was very good, and the price is real reasonable. We followed the advice of other posters and booked the cruise for high tide. That turned out to be good advice.

It was good.. it felt short but the guide was funny. It was a pleasant boat. However he asked everyone where they were from but never asked us and was not interested. We enjoyed ourselves and my friends slept during the trip.

Thank you for your review Aline. We are glad to hear that you and your friends had a lovely time on our boat tour and enjoyed the commentary from our guide.
Although we do often ask visitors where they are from to get a sense of which countries our visitors are from and the different languages which all those on board speak, we cannot always ask 100% of guests. None the less, putting on a great tour for each and every guest on board is always our number one priority. Thank you once again for coming on board!
