Three Bridges 2021 – Invitation

Three Bridges Liffey Cruise

More than a thousand years ago the first Viking longboat rounded into Dublin Bay and sailed up the river Liffey. Now is your opportunity to follow their voyage with the Cruising Association of Ireland’s Three Bridges Liffey Cruise.

Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 September 2021

Join our weekend on the Liffey to cruise through the three opening bridges on the river and enjoy an overnight stay on the Dublin Port pontoon.

This is the annual end of season cruise which attracts a large number of our sailors to mark the end of another summer afloat. The fleet of boats in the river, dressed in bunting and flags, is a wonderful spectacle.

The Clayton Hotel is booked for a three-course dinner on Saturday at 7.30pm and this will be followed by music and a raffle in aid of the RNLI with prizes including overnight stay with dinner in a Clayton Hotel, Champagne, Chandlery Vouchers and more.

The fleet will depart together from the pontoon for a bridge lift at 11.00 on Sunday.
