Details

An unforgettable unique Irish experience. Learn about the customs and traditions of Connemara first hand aboard a Galway Hooker, a traditional sailing vessel unique to this part of the west coast of Ireland. These iconic vessels with their distinctive red sails have been built for centuries by renowned boat building families of the area, and sailed the coastal waters from Galway to the Aran Islands and out into the Atlantic Ocean commercially until the 1960’s.

Why not join us for a truly authentic experience along the Wild Atlantic Way, where you can belong to the Connemara of today yet be spellbound by its past. Absorb the atmosphere while bantering with the crew, who will be more than happy to share their knowledge and passion for their native land. They might even let you take the rudder for a while!
