How does the Dublin City Kayaking Experience work?
The Launching base is located just beside the Jeanie Jonhston Tall Ship, between the Samuel Beckett Bridge and the Sean O’ Casey pedestrian’s bridge. From here you and your team start paddling towards the heart of the city, going under some of Dublin’s most famous bridges and past well known landmarks. We end the trip back to our base where you can safely leave your belongings.
