Solo Kayaking Trips in Dublin City Centre

Explore the city from the water and go for a relaxing paddle in the Grand Canal Dock in a single sit-on-top kayak. Ideal for families, friends or on your own.

Who is it for?

This activity is for adults and under 18s together with adults. The minimum age is 8. One adult can take 2 under 18s out on the water. Our kayaking trips are great for a family outing, if you want to spend quality time on the water with friends or on your own to explore the city from the water.

What does it cost?

The activity is €20 per person and includes a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and for under 18s also a helmet.

What does a typical kayak trip look like?

Please arrive a few minutes before your activity starts to get checked in and changed to go on the water. We will give you all your equipment and explain to you everything you need to know for a good time on the water. The activity takes one hour and plan some time afterwards to get changed.

What equipment do I need?

We provide all equipment for this activity including a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet. Helmets are mandatory for under 18s.

Participants need to bring:

  • Swimwear for under the wetsuit.
  • Appropriate footwear. We recommend an old pair of runners, neoprene booties or water shoes.
    Note: Loose footwear like flip flops or Crocs are not allowed. We do have some footwear available in the centre free of charge.
  • Big Towel or changing robe to get changed outside. Please treat a trip to us like a trip to the beach.


Yes, all participants have to sign a waiver before they can go on a session with us. This is attached to your booking confirmation and can be easily filled in online and shared with other people (if applicable). The text of the waiver can be found here.

This year we will have separate outdoor changing areas for boys and girls. They don’t offer 100% visual cover so we are asking you to treat a trip to us like a trip to the beach and be prepared with a big towel or changing robe. If possible, we would ask that children arrive to camp already changed into their wetsuits. 

Our toilets are open as usual. 

The children’s bags are in a communal locker while they are out on the water. This is closed, but we advise against bringing valuables to the camp as we cannot take liability for lost, damaged or stolen items.

You are welcome to pull in on the cobblestone area right outside the camp for drop off and pick up. Please be mindful of other drivers and pedestrians.

A booking fee of €5 is non-refundable in all instances. All cancellations made by the customer must be made in writing and submitted via email or post. In the event of a cancellation or a request to reschedule more than 14 days (for Easter and Summer Camp bookings) before a session commences, we will refund the amount paid to date minus the non-refundable booking fee of €5. In the event of cancellation/rescheduling less than 14 days (for Easter and Summer Camp bookings) before a session commences the amount paid to date is forfeited. Non-attendance will result in the entire amount paid to date to be forfeited. Please see the full terms and conditions for activity bookings here.

We are located a 10 minute walk from the Grand Canal Dock DART station and a 10-15 minute walk from The Point LUAS stop. Bus routes that stop close by on Ringsend Road are 1, 15a, 15b, 15d, 47, 56a and 77a.

The Grand Canal Dock is a sheltered and enclosed space, which means our sessions can go ahead in most conditions unless it is not safe to do so for example if there are very strong winds. Rain does not stop us from running a session. In the rare case that we need to cancel or postpone a session, we will offer you a full refund or to reschedule the session.
