Cruising The River Liffey – Discover Dublin By Boat

Sometimes when you live in a city for so long you can forget about some of the things that make it so special. I recently took a trip with Dublin Discovered and rediscovered some of my city, Dublin, along the banks of the River Liffey.

Departure Point

The trips lasts for about 45 minutes and departs from beside O’Connell Bridge. The tour guides takes you on a commentary driven exploration of the sights and sounds of Dublin. Tickets costs from €8 for a child and up to €14 for an adult. They also offer a family ticket for €30 which covers two adults and two children.

Dublin Discovered Boat

The tour takes you from O’Connell Bridge down as far as the Dublin Docks and then takes you back to where you began. Along the way you will pass some of Dublin’s most iconic landmarks such as The Custom House, The Convention Center, The Famine Memorial and The Jeanie Johnston.  The guides also treat you to a whole host of interesting facts along the way such as Dublin’s O’Connell bridge is thought to be the only one in Europe which is the length as its width. The current structure also replaced a wooden one in 1863,

The tour is informative, interesting and helps you look at the city with new eyes, so well worth a trip. You can book directly on Dublin Discovered
