IWAI Dublin, small-boat
Dublin is blessed with three navigable waterways, the Grand Canal, the Royal
Canal and the River Liffey. All three are completely underutilised. We
appreciate that not everyone has a barge, cruiser or similar that is (1)
suitable for the canals and (2) is convenient to Dublin. To that end,
IWAI Dublin organises a number of Small Boat Rallies on
Dublin's waterways - by small boats, we mean tenders, RIBS, canoes, steam
launches and similar. We ask you to
register your interest in joining us on one
of these events by filling out our short web form. We'll get
back to you with information about any planned small boat events in the
Dublin area. Click on the icon at right for a sample of what we get up
