Families with elementary-age children will find this amphibious Dublin duck tour hard to resist—as will anyone with a yen for Viking culture! By land, you’ll check off popular attractions like Mansion House, Christ Church Cathedral, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Dublin Castle; on water, you’ll cruise the Grand Canal Dock. That moment when your vehicle becomes a boat is simply spectacular.

What to Expect

Board your restored World War II-era landing craft in central Dublin, greet your entertaining guide, and don your Viking helmets to start the land portion of your tour.

Delve into Dublin’s rich history—not only its Viking past—as you pass attractions like Mansion House, home to Dublin’s Lord Mayor, elaborate St. Patrick’s Cathedral, 12th-century Christ Church Cathedral, and the turrets of Dublin Castle.

Roar like a Viking as your vehicle transforms into a boat and splashes into Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock for the watery part of your Dublin duck tour. Cruise back to your original departure point, exit the water, and bid your guide farewell.

Great craig! Do it :)

Absolutely awesome. We had a fantastic guide who told us all sorts of things about Dublin with a strong emphasis on anecdotes and trivialities. We had much fun scaring the pedestrians by yelling at them and showing our scary Viking faces. Go and book a...More

I'm so glad you asked. I tried to add to my past post about how wonderful the Viking Tour (and safe) is but I wasn't able to because of having to wait for 3 months from my original post. Yes, I felt very safe. My heart... More
