If you love kayaking, live music, and/or activities out of the ordinary, this article is for you, so read on to find out how to listen to live music under the most iconic bridges of Dublin!
Dublin is a city that stands out for many things. Among the details that make it such an interesting city, the presence of the River Liffey stands out for me. This river runs through the city and separates it into two parts, Northside and Southside. Because of this, we find in Dublin many bridges that connect both sides. These bridges themselves have an iconic presence in portraying the image of the city. The most famous ones are Ha’penny Bridge and O’Connell Bridge. When exploring Dublin, it is inevitable to visit these bridges. But the unusual and remarkable thing is that one can go under them for live concerts!
With an activity called ‘music under the bridges’ offered by city kayaking, it is possible to see Dublin from the river and enjoy live music from underneath the bridges. This activity is not well known yet but I think it’s quite worth experiencing. The acoustics under the bridges elevates the sound to another level. The atmosphere is magical and the invited artists are always very talented. The kayak ride lasts an hour and a half, but fear not, even though in the first five minutes you may think your arms will fall off, the two stops made to listen to the music make it manageable.
