We really enjoyed this experience - superb access for even a large powered wheelchair with it's own lift and section. Trip was interesting with excellent commentary and facts and buildings and bridges pointed out. Very pleasant trip - would recommend.

This was a spur of the moment activity as we had time to spare and we are glad we chose this. The guide was full of facts and fun and we learnt so much. Seeing a city from the water is always different and this trip was exceptional. Well worth the price.

The fun is really in the crew. The skipper was a pistol and our youthful guide was entertaining and armed with many anecdotes and factual tidbits. I enjoyed going under the bridges and just being out on the water.

We purchased our tickets for this prior to arriving in Dublin on LivingSocial.com. The tour was 45 minutes and took you from Old Dublin to New Dublin and gave a history or the city. It was quite a great way to spend an afternoon. NOTE - these are not open air boats. It was cool out when we were there.... More

On our last day in Dublin, we had some free time and decided to book this tour. I am very happy we did. Although we had done several rounds of the Hop on/off Bus, two days tours, and several guided tours, we still learned new things on this tour. What also made this tour great was the Guide, Eithne, and... More

A brilliant idea whoever had this idea. A lovely comfortable and informative way of seeing riverside Dublin. 45 mins trip up and down the river with a lively commentary pointing out all the points of interest.

Bought this trip on a voucher deal and was surprised how good it was. Didn't expect to see so many things! It's amazing to see the city from the river and so many things you never notice! The guide was excellent too and made for a very enjoyable trip. All in all fun, informative and very good.
