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.

Heading to the 3 Arena or to the Bord Gais Theatre? Begin or end your evening on board The MV Cill Airne, only 5 minutes walk to the 3 Arena 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.”
