The Boat Restaurant & Bar

Step back in maritime history on board the former tender ship the MV Cill Airne, located on North Wall Quay, Dublin’s floating Restaurant & Bar on the River Liffey. Enjoy the unrivalled views of the waterfront in the heart of Dublin’s docklands . Enjoy a cocktail in our main bar or outside on our outdoor deck – a promising option for a sunny afternoon on the River Liffey. Dine with us in the stunning Quay 16 Restaurant or celebrate your birthday or any special occasion in our private bar, the White Bar.

Heading to the O2 or to the Bord Gais Theatre? Begin or end your evening on board The MV Cill Airne, only 5 minutes walk to the O2 and a short stroll across the Samuel Beckett Bridge to the Bord Gais Theatre

”This beautifully restored ship is a breath of fresh air, and a unique place for dinner. The food is excellent and a pre or post dinner drink on deck is wonderful on a summers evening… hop aboard, you won’t be disappointed.”
