Viking Splash Tour
The Viking Splash was established in 1999 by an Irish-American couple that saw the possibility of the Viking Splash after they saw something similar in Boston.
The fleet consists of 6 DUKWS, each one named after a Viking god/goddess. Dukws were used during World War II to ferry troops and supplies like food, water and medical equipment to land.
Viking Splash Tours is a fun-filled guided tour of Dublin both on land and on water. While on land, you will tour through the sights of Viking & Medieval Dublin, Trinity College, Christ Church Cathedral and lots more historical sites. While on water you will enter the Grand Canal Docks.
