After a day of walking around Dublin, we opted for a relaxing 45 minutes on the boat. Ronan the guide was incredibly knowledgable of the area and told some fascinating tales about the city. Well worth the family ticket price.

This is about a 45 minute river tour of Dublin. The commentator was very knowledgeable and personable. Due to the tide, we had to disembark about a 10 minute walk from where we got on board. Excellent history and development review.More
