Full description
After meeting your guide on the River Liffey, head into the changing rooms to store any valuables, or change out of any clothes you don’t want to get wet. Then you’re off to experience the unique combination of kayaking and music. Over the course of your 2.5-hour tour, some of the best musicians in town will play for you under the most iconic bridges of Dublin. After hopping aboard your sit-on-top kayaks, paddle towards the city center, where you’ll be met by talented local musicians, serenading you at every turn. Enjoy the otherworldly acoustics and one-of-a-kind atmosphere as the musicians play original songs, mixed in with a touch of poetry and history. This private concert sums up what the city is about — good "craic" with friends, laughing, singing along, and breathtaking city views.

Friendly staff, great live music entertainment, was a beautiful sunny day and the tour leader said as such nice day was no rush to return to base, near end of trip if we wanted to just relax on Kayaks and enjoy the view of the city from the Liffey obviously under his watchful eye for a little while longer, would highly recommend for families or groups a creative way to view Dublin and definitely very enjoyable

Fun! Current on the Liffey was a bit strong on the return, but the experience was absolutely wonderful. I was warned we might get wet, Sean (sp?) provided waterproof pants that kept that to a minimum. .
