New! Boat Trips on Dublin Bay
Lose yourself in the magical scenery around Dublin Bay, Killiney Bay, Dalkey Island and Dun Laoghaire, in one of our wonderful ribs. You will be driven by a fully qualified skipper, who’ll be able to show you the key sights and local information related to them.
We’re excited to launch this new service and have a couple of weekly slots this August to get started. We’re currently running trips on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, 6-7:30pm and Saturday mornings, 10.30am-12pm and afternoons from 2-3.30pm; and from October – only on Saturdays and Sundays from 2-3.30pm.
Gear to bring
We’ll provide you with waterproof overalls to wear – in case of a splash – and lifejackets. All you need to wear is footwear with good grip and some warm base layers.
Cost and Booking
Tours cost €35 per person. Children are more than welcome to come along too, but must be aged 7 years or more and accompanied by an adult. Online booking is now open!
What the tour encompasses
The exact schedule is weather and tide dependent, but here are three example itineraries

Head up the Liffey from Dublin port, and take in the beauty of Dublin cityscape and wonderful Georgian architecture, from the water before passing the Bailey Lighthouse in Howth!
Dalkey Island and Coastline
Follow along the mountain scape that is the backdrop to Killiney Bay and catch glimpses of dolphins, wave at the Dart train as it passes by, spot Bono’s home and admire the beauty of that is the Coasta-del-Dun Laoghaire!
Discover Dun Laoghaire from the water, view the Georgian frontages of all the wonderful four yacht clubs, the Irish Lights, the impressive library as it looms up like an ocean liner, view the brand new landmark statue of Roger Casement.
