In collaboration with ‘The Irish Sailing Association’, our family business has inspired numerous visitors to develop a life-long love for ocean living. We have motivated countless generations to 'get out onto the sea', engage in sailing & water activities as a hobby, as well as develop professional careers in the maritime industry & sport.
Sailing is for everyone!
Whether for pleasure during vacations, training for sporting events, or owning your own boat, we can provide you with everything you need to fulfil your dreams of sailing a boat yourself, or being part of a crew of like-minded people.
TRADITIONAL SAIL BOAT
Experience the magic
We have the perfect range of boating experiences for both complete beginners & experienced sailors. We provide expert tuition on how to learn to sail and operate powerboats, motorboats, as well other educational opportunities.
In addition to more conventional sailing / power boats, we can provide you with a chance to venture out to sea on a genuine Traditional Galway Hooker Boat.
We are dedicated to sharing with you the ancient history of this rich maritime tradition, as well as enabling you to partake in the sailing of one of the most visually striking, beautiful & enchanted vessels in the world.
Share the happiness
Learning how to sail, or just experiencing the exhilaration of being out on the water, close to nature’s beauty and mystery, can be transformative.
Sailing brings people together; it enables family bonding; it builds confidence, skills & team-building.
Quite literally, sailing is the perfect antidote to modern-day stressful living.
Give it a try. It's only once you are out and about that you can really feel the magic!

WOMEN ON WATER
We run special women only courses, as part of our ‘Women on the Water Ireland (WOWI)’ initiative. This is a network of female windsurfers, sailors and powerboaters based in Ireland. It was formed with the aim of raising the participation, profile and level of women’s water sports in Ireland.
