Dublin Bay Cruises
With six trips between Dún Laoghaire and Howth departing each day, Dublin Bay Cruises offer the optimum way to experience Dublin’s coastline. The ninety-minute cruise takes in a variety of landmarks along the way, including the James Joyce Tower, a Martello tower where James Joyce once spent six nights, and the idyllic Dalkey island, which is home to, among other things, colonies of adorable grey seals. Other landmarks include the gloriously untouched Ireland’s Eye and Howth Head. A chilled, relaxing way to experience Dublin from an entirely new vantage point.
Your 90 min trip with us brings you not only around the beautiful vista of Dublin Bay, but it also helps you to travel through time and to understand how and why the modern city of Dublin developed to become the capital city of Ireland.
Dublin Bay Cruises is managed and operated by the Garrihy family who have many decades experience on the sea particularly on the west coast of Ireland where they operate 4 ships at Cliffs Of Moher Cruises and Doolin2Aran Ferries.
