A sailing holiday in Ireland allows you to sail past towering sea cliffs such as the famous Cliffs of Moher, witness the rugged beauty of the Aran Islands, and anchors in picturesque harbours like Kinsale and Dingle. The rugged west coast is known for its challenging conditions and thrilling sailing opportunities, while the sheltered waters of the east coast and the Shannon River Estuary provide more relaxed sailing experiences.
Ireland’s rich maritime history comes to life as you visit historic ports and fishing villages along the coast. Explore the fascinating maritime museums, wander through quaint streets lined with colourful houses, and savour fresh seafood in traditional pubs. The locals are known for their warmth, love of the sea and seafaring traditions.
An Irish sailing holiday often includes encounters with diverse marine life. You may spot seals lounging on rocks, dolphins gracefully swimming alongside your boat, or even whales breaching in the distance. Birdwatchers will also appreciate the abundance of seabirds along the coastline.
Whether you’re an experienced sailor or a beginner, a sailing holiday in Ireland offers a chance to explore stunning coastlines, immerse yourself in Irish culture, and create lasting memories on the open waters.

What about currency fluctuations?
Trips are priced in the operator’s local currency and we charge you a conversion to that amount correct at the day of charging. See Payments for more details.
Do I need specialist sailing insurance?
Generally yes, but we recommend checking with your current travel insurer. We can also direct you to appropriate insurers who will be able to provide the right cover. Contact us for our recommendations.
Can I bring a hard suitcase?
Ideally not. Space on boats is always limited and you don’t want to end up sharing you bunk with your suitcase! Soft luggage such as duffel bags and rucksacks are your best bet.
