The search at a property in Dublin 1 was conducted at about 3.30pm on Wednesday as part of a planned operation which targets the sale and supply of drugs, as well as anti-social behaviour in the area.
During the course of the search gardaí seized cannabis herb with an estimated value of €652,000, cannabis resin with an estimated value of €25,000 and cocaine with an estimated value of €4,000.
The combined estimated value of drugs seized is €681,000; the drugs will now be sent for analysis.
Gardaí also seized 12 scrambler motorcycles, three electric scooters and two speed boats during the search operation.
Three men, aged in their 20s, were arrested at the scene and taken to Store Street Garda Station.
Gardaí attached to the Community Policing Unit in Store Street Garda Station, with assistance from the Dublin Metropolitan Region North Central Divisional Drugs Unit, carried out the search.
It forms part of Operation Tara, an enhanced national anti-drugs strategy, which was launched by Garda Commissioner Drew Harris last year.
