It was amazing! Especially listening to the live music under the bridges with such great acoustics. Very unique and relaxing. Must do when you're looking for something cultural and original to do in Dublin.

Our kayaking guide was exceptional and took into account all of the levels of experience in our group. He had a sense of humor and worked well with our inexperienced and experienced group members. We even had a seal swim past us!
