  • Tour on river was interesting.

  • The tour is not to long, neither to short. The guide gave us some interesting and funny insights and facts about Dublin in a nutshell. So, if you wanna spend some time away from the busy streets of Dublin and get some knowledge about the city I would definitely recommend to book this trip :

  • The tour guide could have made this trip a five. He was like a boring old history teacher...

  • Cruise on the Liffey river in Dublin in a beautiful boat. View of some buildings and bridges until the last bridge that is before Dublin harbour. View on the new docks and modern buildings. The commentary in English is clear and explains some facts about the history of Dublin. Although it is impossible to see Dublin directly because the deck is closed, the view through the windows is good. It's a good experience.

  • This was amazing!! well worth it.. one of my favorite Dublin memories .. less than an hr.. but packed full of so much history and info!

  • Worth the money - very informative but not boring

  • Connor and the captain were both excellent, very informative and knowledgable and good fun.

  • the Dublin liffey river cruise , is a good tour to do if you have got a spare hour while in Dublin , the boat goes down the liffey river to the harbour then back up again , during the tour the on board guide tells you about all the famous buildings that you pass and there history I found the tour to be very interesting , but very hard to take photos because you are very low down
    the departure point is very easy to find

  • Nice to see the water front though we thought we would go a little further down into the harbor. The guide covered the basics as we toured

  • I wish I could get my money but more importantly, my time back for this tour. Firstly, they require that you confirm your reservation at least 24 hours before the day of your tour. It was nearly impossible to get ahold of them. We called from the States five different times and no one picked up the phone nor was there an answer machine. I emailed them and never received a response. Once in Dublin we stopped by their kiosk and they were closed and finally, we had the front desk at our hotel try to call them, thinking maybe we were dialing incorrectly, and they had the same results. No answer and no answer machine. We finally had to hang around Dublin one afternoon to try to catch them right before they listed their closing time for the day. Secondly, the tour itself started in one spot but ended in another which was a bit inconvenient and while the guides were nice and informative, there really isn't much history nor much to see on this 45 minute tour that you couldn't see simply by walking the river bank. If I were to choose again, I would have spent this time taking the train out to Howth or buy a tour of Dublin Bay.
