What a disappointment all together! I booked this activity and looking on the their website it clearly states that they do not cancel the activity because of rain. (The forecast was rain, hence the reason I looked it up).The only reason could be wind, as it would be too dangerous. The morning of the activity we arrived, absolutely soaked as... More

I had a nice time and I would recommend canoe kayaking on Liffey to anyone who is seeking to combine activity and sightseeing in a city.

Top notch experience with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide named Jonathan O'Brien who gave us all the history of the Dublin area. Well worth the money and time. Would highly recommend them!!

One of the best things I've done in the city. Such a unique way to see the city centre and appreciate its history and infrastructure. Jonathan was brilliant and we went all the way down to the weir-wall; travelling from city-centre to nature. Won't look at the Liffey the same way again. Do it!!
