We walked along the footpath next to Dublin's Grand Canal toward Portobello. We knew we'd arrived in the right place when we saw boldly colored kayaks sitting at the edge of the water. We'd availed ourselves of a Groupon deal almost a year ago for a deeply discounted two hour kayaking session on the Grand Canal offered by Extreme Time-Off. We were delayed in using the voucher for the kayaking session due to dredging and construction work undertaken on Dublin's Grand Canal last summer.
