City Kayaking All Stars

do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life

Micheal Byrne & Jonathan O’Brien

We are local ‘Dubs’ who are passionate about our city, the river Liffey and water activities. We’ve grown up around the river, played in it as children, and now are lucky enough to work and play in it as adults too. Our adventures in the river at a young age no doubt lead us into our careers as outdoor activity specialists. Through this we have worked in everything from kayaks to old tall ships, at home and abroad. Now we are happy to be back in the place where it all started for us and we love to bring locals and visitors alike through our city and show it to them from our perspective

Innovative Ideas

We are always happy to come up with different ways to explore Dublin’s water ways. In the past years we relised the potential of the bridges and their acoustics so we trasformed them into a stage to display local musicians. Please get in touch if you would like to create something together!

Advanced Technology

Here at City kayaking we use one of the best booking system available  in order to provide a simple and painless booking experience. However we think we can be a little more pleasant than computers so if you need any help with the booking procedure don’t hesitate to give us a call! 

Clear Communication

Explain us what you need and if it’s not in our range of services we we might be able to point you  in the right directions. We have over 40 years experience in water sports in Dublin area. Yes, we are the “go to” guys.
