A Viking Splash Tour is one of the most unique tours I’ve ever taken.
Passengers don Viking helmets, board an amphibious vehicle from the second World War called DUKWs, and tour Dublin’s City Center on land and sea.

How Much of the Tour is on the Water?
Why is the tour a Fun Way to see Dublin with Kids?
The guides are what make this tour entertaining. When I asked my 11-year old what he liked most about the Viking Splash Tour, he didn’t hesitate, “The jokes.”
Not only do the guides impart a vast amount of information about the city, they do it with great humor. Our guide was Anthony and he had us laughing throughout Dublin. We especially enjoyed roaring at the unsuspecting Celts along our route.
If you’re traveling to Ireland’s capital with kids and the thought of a boring, dry tour is unappealing, a Viking Splash Tour is a refreshingly unique alternative. It’s also a kid-friendly thing to do in Dublin.
Is it for everyone?
Maybe not, but if you like to learn and have a few laughs, this is a popular and fun way to see Dublin.
