  • Experience the life of a sailor on board a traditional vessel.
  • Sailing a traditional tall ship through the historic Dublin Port, into Dublin Bay and along the incredible coastline, a truly unique experience you will never forget. 
  • Learn about crewing a genuine traditional sailing ship. 


Set sail and let us immerse you in the beauty of the Irelands sensational sea side view, exploring the Bay, which is now a recognised Unesco Biosphere. 
After a short safety briefing we'll be setting sails. You will have the option to climb out on to the “Bowsprit” (the netting at the very front of the ship) and earn how the Irish High King “Brian Ború” took on the Vikings in the Battle of Clontarf bay in 1014 as we sail by that very location.
From history to nature we're very excited to share our local knowledge with you!
No experience is necessary, just buckets of enthusiasm.
Feel the wind fill the sails and lift the ship and her crew into the experience of a lifetime!
