Had been emailing with them for 2 weeks to make sure we had a day booked to celebrate a birthday in Dublin city. We had an appointment at 18:00 and we were there at 17:45. Around 18:30, when there was still no one there or picked up a phone, and we started to freeze outside in the cold we decided... More

Last Monday we showed up for a 3pm kayak trip. I had paid for in advance online and also exchanged emails about the booking. Come Monday we turned up at 245pm they did not. We waited. We called. We emailed. Nothing. A week has passed we have tried calling, emailing, fb messaging and have had no response and no money... More

A great time was had viewing the city from a different angle. The guide was friendly and full of pleasingly random knowledge. The kayak boats were well maintained and all safty and correct boating atire provided. Over all I would highly recomend it as a slightly different holiday experience.

This was my favorite part of my recent trip to Ireland. Our tour guide was funny and very informed, we got to float down the river Liffy which has the best view of the center city. It was romantic and so much fun! We opted to not bring our cameras because we were afraid we'd get them wet and once... More

A group of around 10 of us joined City Kayaking for a great team building day out. We started off at the Jeanie Johnston and made our way down along the Liffey until one of us reached a point near the Guinness Storehouse (maybe). The rest of us did not. Some of us were too busy floating in circles to... More

We booked this Kayaking City tour in advance and it really was the highlight of our recent trip to Dublin. The tour lasted 2 hours as we paddled along the River Liffey, from Custom House Quay to the Guinness factory. Along the way, our guide gave us lots of interesting historical information about the city. Indeed, both guides were informative,... More

It was my first time kayaking so I was a bit nervous but there was really no need, Donnchadh and Hugh were fantastic - lovely guys! Whether you are just visiting Dublin or have lived here your whole life, I would highly recommend this trip, you get to see the city in such a unique way.

My friends and I had a great morning out paddling with Jonathan. The trip was good fun, we saw a lot of scenery you wouldn't from the city, and learnt a few new things too. Really nice instructor, good facilities - I'd recommend it!

This was a really great way to spend the afternoon, seeing the city from another perspective, we went from the Jeannie Johnson to Capel street bridge, having a laugh splashing about on the water and getting some exercise as well, the equipment was all good quality, the instructors looked after us well and we all got back on shore safe...

Had a lovely morning kayaking upriver as far as the James Joyce bridge. It was tiring, but well worth it as we ended up seeing as seal that far up river! It followed us as we returned back towards the Jeanie Johnston, and we could relax and enjoy the journey back. Something every Dubliner should do just to take in... More
