Settle into the high speed boat designed for comfort and speed and begin cruising on the River Liffey. Your guide will tempt you with entertaining snippets of life in Dublin's Docklands 300 years ago. As you move up the river pass Pidgeon House, the Electricity Power Station which is a site of considerable significance in the history of Irish technology and stands with Dublin's own Twin Peaks towering above it.
Next encounter the Great South Wall, the most spectacular structure stretching out into the bay. Your Irish guide will continue to enthrall you with local folklore as you travel past the Great North Wall, and behind it is Bull Island, a designated UN biosphere reserve. Speed past the Poolbeg Lighthouse marking the entrance to the walled port channel and enjoy the power of the twin 275hp Yamaha engines speeding up to 25 knots. Watch the local seals, the wild goats, friendly rabbits and beautiful birds at The Muglins and Dalkey Island. Listen to the fascinating history of the King of Dalkey, Martello Tower and much more. The perfect time to take photographs!
Now... full steam ahead as you cruise to exclusive Sorrento Bay. Catch a glimpse of the homes where Ireland's rich and famous live. The band members from U2, Bono and The Edge both live here along with famous Irish writer/director Neil Jordan. As you return home pass James Joyce Museum, the Forty Foot bathing place, DunLaoghaire Harbor and stretch out into Scotsman Bay where you can experience the fun and excitement of the boat before returning to the marina.
