This tour was a surprise favorite of ours! We went in with mild curiosity, and were absolutely fascinated! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, and made us want to learn more about famine ships. Definitely a memorable experience.

Myself and my partner thoroughly enjoyed the Dublin Liffey River Cruise! We’re both from Dublin and it was great to see and learn about the history of Dublin while gliding along the water! Paul & Gerry were fantastic and we felt very comfortable with the safety elements on board the cruise! Would definitely recommend 👍🏻

We booked this Waterbus tour a few days after lock-down was lifted. The view from the waterline was great. Even as a dub it was great to see the changes on the Dublin skyline especially at the rejuvenated docklands. The Guide gave some great insight into Dublin's history. #ramblingstampcollectors

With very little available as regards entertainment or activities during these weird times, we decided to give the boat trip a go. I have to say We enjoyed every second of it. It was very informative and interesting to get an historical and educational history of the river Liffey. A river that I’ve only passed over 1000’s of times without giving it much thought. The tour guide made this very entertaining and jovial, the time flew by. The boat was very smooth and very well maintained, with no jelly legs getting off either. The 2 lads looked after us very well and had us very at ease at all times while still giving us a good laugh. I recommend it as a lovely way to see an aspect of Dublin that is known to us but not known about.
