Try Sailing Sessions

They say "Sailing is good for the soul" and we fully agree! So much so, we now offer Try Sailing sessions from Poolbeg Yacht and Boat club for anyone and everyone. Come and join us for a few hours and experience this wonderful sport while leaving all your worries ashore. 

We use a range of boats at the club including Ruffians (small yachts), Skud 18's (paralympic sailing boats) and Topaz Dinghies (fun and nippy small boats) allowing us to cater for people of most abilities. 

This activity is suitable for individuals or groups of as little as 2 people up to groups as large as 20 people! Whether it's a family day out, a Birthday Party, Stag Party, Hen Party, a work day out or just a group of friends looking for a fun activity to do we promise you a fun session on the water with our skippers!

We advise you wear outdoor clothing and good footwear as you may get some splashes while sailing (and we can't guarantee it won't rain!). We'll kit you out with a personal flotation device and give you a briefing in our training room at the club before heading out. There are full shower, changing and toilet facilities should you wish to use them. There is a full bar in the club too where we would invite you to enjoy a drink to quench your thirst after being out on the water for the last few hours! (Or warm the bones with a hot drink if it's chilly out!)!

Check out our booking system for upcoming sessions that you can book straight away online or drop us a line on if you would like to schedule a different time. (For groups of 4 or more we can schedule times to suit depending on availability.)
