Floating Through Time River Tour

Standard €30 per person

Premium* Trip €45 per person

Experience the history of Ireland on a tour like no other.

Drift downriver on an inflatable raft through a medieval walled town that developed in a unique way around the legendary Boyne River. Paddle by ancient abbeys, religious ruins and hilltop bell-towers. Float under the arches of medieval stone bridges. Pass beneath the shadow of the largest Norman castle in Europe where invading knights controlled the island.

Listen as your local guide shows you how the river was part of every story from the earliest Christian missionaries to medieval leper hospitals and IRA rebels during the War of Independence.

Paddling the raft is a gentle exercise and it will give you the feeling of being immersed in this historic landscape. Buoyancy aids and wellies are provided to keep you safe and dry on the raft (though we can’t stop the rain).

Give James a call on 086 734 2585 if you are interested in this unique tour.

*Your Premium river tour will finish in a traditional Irish riverside pub.
