River Tubing

Casual floating and exhilarating rapids

This is our newest activity but already an instant classic! The rapid on the river just outside our base offers a fantastic controlled environment for having fun on the water. The combination of relaxed floating down the calm waters and the exhilaration of running the rapid make this activity a great option for the keen adventurer whether young or old. Our tubing sessions are particularly popular with kid's groups and make for a fantastic activity to celebrate any event.

The Route

Our giant SlipNSlide is the perfect way to enter the water and for the less adventurous our grass slipway provides a smoother entry. A short float down the river brings you to the mighty rapids. The line to take is straight down the middle through the wave. The river slows down as it enters the shallows after the wave. Now all you need to do is jump out and repeat!

What you'll see

River tubing is all about fun and excitement. Our river tubes are the best way to get close to the action. The section of river outside our base is the ideal environment to get your first taste of white water.

Expert river guides

Our raft guides are all IRF (International Raft Federation) qualified and have countless hours of experience working on the river. Between this and our passion for sharing our love of the river our guests are in safe hands.

The best of equipment

We use the very best of gear from Aqua Design and Palm Equipment to ensure complete comfort and safety for everybody who joins us on the water. Our Rafts are custom made with the River Liffey in mind. Stable, Sturdy and super comfy. Our Wetsuits, Cags, Buoyancy Aids and Helmets help to keep you safe and warm throughout the trip.

Chill at our riverside facilities

Our base at Mill Lane is a hidden gem. Standing on the banks of the river surrounded by green foliage and the sounds of rushing water it is hard to believe that we are only 7km from the heart of Dublin City. Enjoy a coffee or tea from the ‘Workshop’ cafe after your trip. Birthday party? Why not use our outdoor seating area to celebrate in style!

Age restrictions

The minimum age for active participants is 12 years old. Active participants are considered to be those who are strong enough to help propel the raft down the river. Younger kids can take part in our trips as non-paddling participants. Please get in touch for further details.

What should I bring?

We have everything you need to get on the water in comfort and safety. All you need is swimwear for under your wetsuit, old runners you don’t mind getting wet and a towel to dry off afterwards. You are very welcome to wear your own wetsuit if you prefer.

What's included?

We provide all of the necessary equipment and transport to the ‘get in’ point above Lucan village. We have full changing facilities, hot showers and on-site parking at our base in Mill Lane.
