Families with elementary-age children will find this amphibious Dublin duck tour hard to resist—as will anyone with a yen for Viking culture! By land, you’ll check off popular attractions like Mansion House, Christ Church Cathedral, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Dublin Castle; on water, you’ll cruise the Grand Canal Dock. That moment when your vehicle becomes a boat is simply spectacular.

What to Expect

Board your restored World War II-era landing craft in central Dublin, greet your entertaining guide, and don your Viking helmets to start the land portion of your tour.

Delve into Dublin’s rich history—not only its Viking past—as you pass attractions like Mansion House, home to Dublin’s Lord Mayor, elaborate St. Patrick’s Cathedral, 12th-century Christ Church Cathedral, and the turrets of Dublin Castle.

Roar like a Viking as your vehicle transforms into a boat and splashes into Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock for the watery part of your Dublin duck tour. Cruise back to your original departure point, exit the water, and bid your guide farewell.

I was disappointed. The cost was $74 euro fir 2 adults and 2 littles. The splash part was about 10-15 minutes on the river. You can do the hop on hop off for a lot less money and see many more sights.

It's a fun way to see Dublin for sure and different from the usual hop on hop off bus but it wasn't much of a tour. Our tour guide was energetic and fun but pointed out a few buildings and told some sarcastic stories about...More

Great way to learn about Dublin

During a recent visit to Dublin we decided to take the Dublin Viking Duck Tour and what an experience it was, we learned more from the Viking tour than we did from the open top bus tour and the driver was knowledgable, informative and funny....More

Fun tour of Dublin

Good way to see some of the city without walking. They could probably include a tad bit more history but give you some decent information. It was fun, their were some jokes, and hilarious for the kids to yell at people on the street with...More
