River Liffey at Dublin city centre

Dublin’s No.11 Liffey Ferry returns to the capital’s waters after a 35-year absence following a complete restoration by Dublin Port Company and Dublin City Council.

The service linked  the North docks and South docks when the nearest river crossing was Butt Bridge but was decommissioned in 1984 following the completion of the East Link Bridge.

The No. 11 will taxi passengers between three points – the 3Arena to Sir John Rogerson’s Quay to MV Cill Airne at North Wall Quay and back – starting Monday February 11, running Monday to Friday between 7am and 7pm.

Dublin Cycling Campaign is hosting a mass cycle along Dublin’s Quays this Sunday to demonstrate support for the Liffey Cycle Route. This fun, free, family-friendly cycle will highlight the need for a safe, segregated cycle route along the Quays, from the Phoenix Park down the the Point Village.

The Liffey Cycle will depart from the Wellington Monument in the Phoenix Park at 11am and then proceed down the Quays in one large convoy of bikes. After a brief pause near the Beckett Bridge we will head to Phibsborough where local residents and Phizzfest will provide music and refreshments outside Bang Bang Café on Leinster Street.

This is a free event and no registration is required. Every type of cyclist, and non-cyclist, is welcome to come along. Marshalling and traffic management will be provided by Dublin Cycling Campaign and the Garda Traffic Corp. For more information please check out Dublin Cycling Campaign’s website.
