The sun is shining, Dublin is looking glorious and rumour has it it’s going to last for the weekend.
If you are visiting Dublin for a few days and looking to see some nearby places and attractions, the choice is endless but why not see the city from a whole new angle?

City Kyaking Dublin

City Kayaking operate from a base at Custom House Quay, directly beside where the Jeanie Johnston Tall Ship is docked.

This is a truly unique experience for visitors and locals alike.

Escape the hustle and bustle of Dublin city centre while taking in some of the city’s most iconic landmarks from the calm water.

Paddle through the heart of the city in the company of experienced local instructors.

Discover both the old and new quarters of Dublin in a memorable way.

This tour is the only way to paddle under the famous O’Connell and Ha’penny bridges!

No previous experience is necessary, and the tour is accessible to all — old and young, sporty and not so sporty.

The kayaks are very stable and simple to use with 1/3 people on board each and if anyone gets a little tired the City Kayaking crew have safety boats available to give a tow.

These exclusive tours are safe and fun, moving at a pace that suits every level of fitness.

What do you need to bring?

The City Kayaking team work to keep you as dry as possible but kayaking is a water-sport and you’re going to get a bit wet, so be prepared! 

There are changing rooms on site where you can safely leave your belongings while you are on the water

They supply splash-proof tops and trousers should you wish to use them and advise you to bring the following:

  • Comfortable clothes and footwear to wear on the kayak (these will get wet!)
  • A towel
  • A change of clothes for when you are finished
  • If you have waterproof clothing or a wetsuit you can bring them along for your own use
  • We do ask that you dress appropriately for the weather

Music Under The Bridges

If you’re looking for an added experience while in Dublin, join the City Kayaking team for a very special Session of Kayaking and Music!

Every Saturday from June to September some of the best musicians in town will play UNDER the most iconic bridges of Dublin!

The acoustics are unbelievable and the atmosphere on the water is magic!

You will get onboard your stable "sit on top" kayak and paddle towards the city centre and back stopping under a few bridges where the musicians will play to you from their safety boats.
