“ Boat tours of Dublin City. „
I hope I can convey how much fun we had on this tour in March 2012. After a reasonably heavy night out which followed a long day around the city, who would have thought the perfect activity would be wearing a daft plastic Viking helmet, going round Dublin roaring at other tourists? What really made it so much fun was the brilliant guide, who had us giggling all round the city. We were given a mixture of the more standard traditional information about the history and areas of Dublin mixed in with trivia and anecdotes ranging from the fun to the absurd all told with incredible wit and comic timing at an absolutely ferocious speed. It was like getting a tour of Dublin with a stand up show included. Just plain awesome.
There were a couple of other things which made it worthwhile. One was the interactive nature - all of us on the boat would join in with roaring like vikings at our enemy (the open top tour buses) or unsuspecting Celts minding their own business (pedestrians on their mobiles). It was also nice to get to see a bit of the city from a different viewpoint in the part of the tour on water.
I really can't recommend this enough, we had a great time!
