Both my teenage daughter and I found the commentary informative and entertaining . The staff were very pleasant and the boat was comfortable. It gave us an excellent overview of the attractions in Dublin, many of which we later visited. The recommended visit to the Jeannie Johnson was definitely worthwhile!

The boat is really nice with comfy seats and big windows. Takes you from the Bachelors Walk a little to the west and then all the way to East Link bridge and back. The crew are polite and helpful. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. I wished the boat went to Grand Canal area but still I would recommend the... More

We meant to do this Liffey Cruise some time ago as we are both born and reared in Dublin and the wait was certainly worth it. A different perspective of the city from the water and the great weather on the Easter Monday bank holiday made it even better. The guide (Niall) was very helpful, informative and witty and the...

Best bit of Dublin! See the often ignored areas of the city on a comfortable boat. The tour guides know their stuff and make it worth while. They can also give you tips about where to go and see when you're back on solid ground. Well worth the ticket price.

Come onboard for a different view of the attractions along the river liffey! The boat cruise is nice and the boat is fully enclosed so you'll enjoy regardless of the weather. On the boat cruise you'll be able to get pictures of buildings from a much different angle than at street level, and you'll get close up views of the... More

A group of 6 friends and I went on the trip on Saturday morning. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our guide Kevin was a true delight, he kept us all captivated for the entire trip. All of the crew were equally friendly and welcoming. We booked the trip on a living social deal and our expectations were surpassed. Finding the... More

After a very warm welcome from Paul the captain and Richard the Guide, we travelled up and down the Liffey. The boat was really clean and the seats very comfortable. It provides perfect photo opportunities throughout the journey. Richard pointed out many buildings, bridges and statues and provided a fun look at the history of Dublin. An hour well spent.

a few months ago I took this boat tour while in Dublin and suddenly finding myself as the not-so local guide showing my boyfriends parents around the city I thought it was worth a repeat. I actually enjoyed it more - Richard was my guide this time and he was very funny. It wasn't that I didn't like the other... More

This boat trip is dependent on the tides as it has to get under the bridges of the Liffey, so book ahead as they can get full pretty quickly. Your itself was very informative & relaxing but it seemed to go very fast (45mins). Boat itself is comfortable with plenty of glass to see all views. Highly recommended.
