Water Sports

Fun, adventure, exercise, team-building and the chance to see some of the most beautiful parts of the Liffey from a whole new angle — Rafting.ie gives you a day to remember, which just might be the experience of a lifetime.

Your trip with Rafting.ie starts just 20 minutes from Dublin’s city centre, and a whole world away. Taking around 2.5 hours, you’ll follow the river through the beautiful Strawberry Beds, flowing downriver, navigating four weirs, checking out the stunning wildlife and discovering some intriguing history on the way.

The River Liffey is a treasure trove. Upstream from Dublin’s city centre, in its wilder environment, it is unique and wonderful, life-giving and life-enhancing. To discover it is to be gladdened by it. In fact, words don’t do it justice — you simply have to see and experience it with your own eyes and ears.

Set up in 2009 by a group of rafting experts and enthusiasts, Rafting.ie gives you a unique, fun and safe way to discover both the river and the joys of rafting. We’ve been on Irish national teams, we’ve travelled and taken in some of the great rivers of the world, and now we’re delighted to bring our passion to the Liffey. We love to raft and it shows!

You can enjoy water sports on the Liffey in many different ways with providers such as Wild Water Kayak Club, Kayaking.ie, CanoeCentre.ie and Canoeing Ireland.
