IRELAND YACHT CHARTER
Ireland is sometimes wrongly overlooked as a great location in Europe to charter a yacht. It is true that Ireland yacht charter can be for the more experienced, as some of the open sea passages can be challenging, even if short. However, discovering Ireland on a luxury charter yacht will leave you with an unforgettable and unique experience with memories to last a lifetime. There is no more luxurious and comfortable way of travelling the coast of Ireland than aboard a beautiful, fully-crewed vessel, with deluxe amenities and impeccable service.

Admire the Royal Cork Yacht Club, the oldest yacht club in the world, Bantry Bay and Oysterhaven harbour. Interesting chartering areas include Kinsale, with its Georgian homes, Castle Haven and very steep streets, as well as the lovely harbour of Arigold. There are also numerous marinas, ports and local pubs where you can sample some Guinness, share a laugh and hear a song. You can even sail your charter yacht out to Fastnet Rock, famous for the Fastnet Race and infamous for the 1979 Fastnet storm.
