The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre is just a 3-minute walk away and hosts well-known musicals, plays and live music. The cruising route begins at Grand Canal Basin and finishes at Percy Place. The journey takes approximately 1 hour each way.
Important informationPlease note that cruising is only permitted in the months of July and August.
