Dublin bay cruises are offering an excellent service. I phoned to enquire and a real person answered the phone! Given her personal choice I booked with a trip Sunday 25th June and it was great. Seeing the bridge lift up and leaving the city behind and the views of Dublin bay

Took Dublin Bay Cruises from Dublin to Howth via Dun Laoghaire. Great trip. Got to see Dublin Harbor and many sights that you cannot see from the city. Crew was very friendly. I would recommend this cruise.
