“ The Boardwalk / Bachelors Walk / Dublin 1 / Tel: 353 1 473 4082 „
On a recent visit to Dublin, I was determined to take in the sites after all my main client base is Irish Customers so I thought it nice to take a bit of an interest.
As our flights were not returning back home until later that evening we had a lot of time to pass before leaving for the airport, it was a miserable day and it was pouring down with rain so we were looking for somewhere to take shelter and decided to take a tour on the Liffey River Cruise on Bachelors Walk.
Due to the height of some of the bridges if the water levels are too high then the cruise may not run, however the ticket booth is manned and they will be able to advise of the next cruise time.
The tour takes part on board "The Spirit of the Docklands" an all weather boat designed specifically for narrow spaces limited headspace.
The boat can accommodate up to 48 guests and also is suitable for disabled passengers.
For Euro12 per adult I purchased 2 tickets and boarded the river boat and was suprised to see how busy this tour was as there were hardly any empty seats to choose from.
Once we were onboard the cruise the tour guide introduced himself and then introduced us to our captain for the duration of our tour.
As the tour began we were given historical information of the surrounding areas as well as the bridges that passed over the River Liffey and explaining the new developments that are taking place to help Dublin's tourism.
The tour guide is comical and really makes this tour he is friendly and happy to answer any questions that you may have.
The tour operates from March through to the end of November with up to six sailing times per day. I would advise getting your ticket nice and early as the tours appear to very popular and after our tour had finished there was already a large queue forming for the following tour.
The vessel used is fully air conditioned and the seats are so comfortable I could have sat on it for a longer period of time, the cruise itself lasted just over 30 minutes and was one of the best tours I have taken in a long time.
Daily sight-seeing cruises on the Liffey. This unique experience gives the visitor an intriguing insight into Dublin folklore and history from the vantage of Anna Livia herself! All sailings depart from and return to Bachelors Walk and are 45 minutes in duration with full commentary on board.
