Take to the water
With its glistening coastline, interlinking canals and rivers big and small, Dublin offers pretty much everything a water enthusiast could want. If you're a thrill-seeker, you can try wakeboarding around Grand Canal Dock with Wakedock. Or enjoy an afternoon of windsurfing and stand up paddle boarding with Surfdock.
See Dublin from a different perspective with City Kayaking as you glide down the River Liffey, passing under many of its most famous bridges. Every Saturday from June to September, you can paddle to the beat of live music under O’Connell Bridge as Dublin’s best musicians take to the waters to serenade kayakers on their journey.
To really get the blood pumping, hop on the Dart and stop off at Sandycove & Glasthule to partake in Dublin’s traditional Forty Foot swimming tradition – it’s an exhilarating experience!
