Sightseeing in a busy city can be both stressful, and hard on your feet. That’s why the perfect way to really explore and experience the Irish capital, Dublin, is by kayak on the waters of the River Liffey. You don’t need to be the sporty type on this leisurely 1.5-hour meander, and you don’t need to have kayaked previously as these double-seated kayaks are stable and ideal for beginners, young or old. Plus, there’s even a support boat on hand, just in case someone needs to take a break.
With a highly experienced guide, paddle your way through the heart of the city, passing landmarks, old and the new. The River Liffey is the lifeblood of Dublin, having witnessed its history from the arrival of the Vikings to the War of Independence. It has heard the words of poets and playwrights, the literature of Joyce, Yeats, and Wilde, and has inspired artists and musicians across the centuries. At the end of this unique city experience, you’ll return invigorated to your original starting point, which is only a short walk from the bustling heart of the city.
