This is a fantastic adventure and works very well as an after work event for business based in Dublin city centre. The plan is to Paddle eight kilometres down river through the heart of Dublin – starting in Islandbridge, taking in some of the city’s most famous sights along the way, and finishing up in the docks in Ringsend
It’s a beautiful experience, winding our way from the countryside-esque Islandbridge, through the city, under all the bridges and into the heart of Dublin’s reinvigorated Docklands.
This experience requires a low to mid level fitness as the paddle itself isn’t too tough but it is a long trip that will require stamina.
We’ll be meeting on the banks of the river Liffey near Chapelizod where there’ll be a Stand Up Paddleboard, wetsuit and buoyancy aid waiting for every adventurer
IMPORTANT: This is a one-way trip starting near Chapelizod and finishing in Ringsend so we strongly advise not to drive your car to the start point. The best thing to do is to take public transport or a taxi to the meeting point in Chapelizod. If you’re planning on driving a car it would be best to drop it at the finishing point (Link to map here: https://goo.gl/maps/kRnyknsomGs ) and find your way up the Liffey from there.
We’re going to leave our clothes and other belongings in the van at the starting point so the van can bring them back down to Ringsend for us to change when we’re finished.
The ride down the Liffey should take an hour and a half, we don’t have any changing facilities there so be prepared to change out in the world or in the back of one of our vans.
We unfortunately don’t have any toilet facilities there so this is something to consider before you join us.
We can have a BBQ on site ready to cook, but the attendees will need to provide their own food.
