Save couple of hours to take a stroll along here and have a lovely day! Its a free program and goes along the main drag of Dublin. You gonna meet a lots of bridges that allows you to cross both sides (north and south city). Throughout the route have some bars, restaurants and shops .. Don't forget your camera ;)

Liffey makes Dublin so much attractive. But not so much at days when the water level is low, than its just yuck!

We took this toodle down the river just after arriving in Dublin. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. It was funny, because he grew up in Ontario where we reside and had no Irish accent, but has Irish heritage. He knew where we were from. Anyway, he told interesting stories and we got to see some things we... More

I've never been invited to review a river before so I thought I couldn't pass up the chance. The Liffey is a river, fairly wide but not too wide, 2 sides, green water, but really it's more of a canal. Makes a nice centrepiece for the city and does have a couple of nice bridges, but would benefit from a... More

Beautiful way to see the buildings along the sides of the River Liffey. Our tour bus deposited us near the entrance to the boat tour. I would have loved to have had time to look around in this area so we are going to go back in 2015. The cruise provides some fantastic views of the river and an informative... More

The Liffey goes right through the centre of Dublin and with all its bridges cannot be missed. However it is nothing spectacular!

Don't miss taking a walk down at least part of the Liffey while in Dublin. There's beautiful buildings on both sides, and nice walking paths. Every block or so there will be a bridge. All the bridges are very unique. Some are historic, some are modern and quite stunning. You can easily work this into walking between locations, for example... More

Had a lovely visit to Dublin during a round Britain cruise. We just loved Dublin and can't wait to go back for a longer visit. During our visit we took a river cruise, many thanks to Paul and Richard our guide who pointed out all the fantastic sites like the harp bridge and the Jeannie Johnston and Ha'penny Bridge.

This river is nothing special, just a river not really big and there´s nothing special about it. The real important things in Dublin are at the banks of the river; the buildings, etc.

The River Liffey is nice enough. It's nothing special though. The surrounding buildings and attractions are more worthwhile seeing.
