Dublin Guided Kayak Tour

All our kayaks are doubles and triples. We think it's much more fun with a minimum of two people in each kayak but if you really want to fly solo we can put you in a small double kayak. All prices listed are per person. We run our guided  river trips eveinings from Dublin City Moorings through the very center of the beating heart of the capital. Our river trip is the only way to actually paddle under the famous O’Connell and Ha’penny bridges! City Kayaking is a fantastic way to see Dublin’s most famous landmark sites from a unique angle!

The trips are led by our experienced local guides and our kayaks are very stable "sit on top", ideal for beginners.  The experience takes about 2 hours of which at least 90 minutes on the water.

If you have a gift voucher, please email with your preferred time and date and we will get you booked in! 


Over the summer we were delighted to welcome the Morrison family to City Kayaking as part of the family friendly Clayton Hotel's Green Irish Road Trip. We were chosen to participate because of our commitment to limiting our impact on the environment. We are delighted to share our participation badge on our website. We have also been included in Clayton Hotel Leopardstown 'things to do in Dublin with kids' and 'sustainable activities in Dublin’. Check them out for some pictures and videos of the Morrisons enjoying City Kayaking and book your family tickets today.
