Why not Experience fine dining in style whilst cruising the Grand Canal on the Canal Boat Restaurant.

The new replica Guinness Canal Barge MV Cadhla gently meanders along a beautiful stretch of Dublin's Grand Canal, from Charlemont place, by Mespil Road to the Grand Canal theatre and passes through five locks along the way. Sit back and relax with a pre-dinner drink and enjoy a delicious 3 course meal in a fresh environment with this unique and interesting experience.  The boat features a large wheelhouse which will save you from the rain and allow you to enjoy your meal without getting cold or wet.

You now have the perfect excuse to take time out and enjoy this unique experience with your family and friends.

Enjoy a two-hour dinner cruise along a beautiful stretch of the Grand Canal. Savour some drinks up on deck while taking in the wonderful views before making your way down to the dining saloon for a delicious three-course meal. All food is freshly prepared on board by the expert team of chefs who are happy to cater to dietary requirements on request. The Eco-Friendly barge is battery operated which allows for a smooth and silent cruise along the canal with no fumes emitted.
