Viking Splash Tours

A city tour with a difference! The mode of transport is an amphibious World War II landing craft, allowing you to view the city from both land and water.  Irreverent costumed Viking tour guides will lead you through the streets of Dublin, teaching you to roar like Vikings at passersby's! Sights along the way include Dublin's two famous City Cathedrals, Saint Patrick's and Christchurch, Viking Dublin, Trinity College, Government Buildings (Leinster House) and Georgian Dublin. The highlight of the tour is the ‘Splashdown' into the water at Grand Canal Dock.

The Viking Splash is suitable for all, adults and children alike. It departs from St Stephens Green daily. For information on tickets click here
