Raft on the Liffey
Raft on the Liffey
Fun, adventure, exercise, team building, and the chance to see some of the most beautiful parts of the Liffey from a whole new angle ! It will be a day to remember, which just might be the experience of a lifetime.
Your trip starts just 20 minutes from Dublin’s city centre, and a whole world away. Taking around 2.5 hours, you’ll follow the river through the beautiful Strawberry Beds, flowing downriver, navigating four weirs, and checking out the stunning wildlife, and discovering some intriguing history on the way.
The River Liffey is a treasure trove. Upstream from Dublin’s city centre, in its wilder environment, it is unique and wonderful, life giving and life enhancing. To discover it is to be gladdened by it. In fact, words don’t do it justice, you simply have to see and experience it with your own eyes and ears.
We provide you an unique, fun and safe way to discover both the river, and the joys of rafting. We’ve been on Irish National teams, we’ve travelled and taken in some of the great rivers of the world, and now we’re delighted to bring our passion to the Liffey. We love to raft and it shows!
