Boating on the Grand Canal

Boating on the Grand Canal is the ultimate in contrasts. The urban intensity of Dublin's south city centre contrasts so sharply with the rural expanses.
Linked to the Barrow by the Barrow Line, boating in this area offers both river and canal experiences and is where most of the hire companies are based.

​​Barge Hire

(no license required)

On the Grand Canal and the Barrow Line of the Grand Canal, barge hire is available for people wanting to take charge of their own craft and direct their holiday albeit at a pace of no more than 5km per hour!!

Self-drive barges are suitable for  2 - 6 persons and can be hired from bases close to Dublin for periods from a few days to a afew weeks. Fitted out to a high standard, with sleeping cabins, bathrooms /ensuite bathrooms, kitchen and dining areas as well as a lounge area, these craft are truly a home away from home.

Most companies require the craft to be returned to the base from which it was hired. Training is provided at the outset and lifejackets are provided by all companies. Support is also provided enroute should you run into difficulties.

 

Boat Trips

Tour boats provide visitors to the Dublin with public and private tours of the navigation from 90 mins - ​2 hours duration. The scheduled public tours take place most of the year.

Tours on traditional barges are also available for small groups and are mainly based on the waterway outside Dublin.
