Island hopping camping trips in addition to the annual Summer Camp make a very busy Summer, we have a range of sailing Dinghies but lean towards catamarans.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Group of 10 of us sailed with Seamus and his club and had the best experience. Lots of boats to choose from, but the best part was Seamus himself; his hospitality, helpfulness, knowledge of the locality, storytelling, easy going nature and basically attending to all our needs. Fantastic experience and can't recommend the club enough. Meant to stay 3 hours but ended up 5 hours. And of course there's his dog who was a fun companion on the water.....

A group of 5 friends and I completed our National Powerboat licence with Seamus. He was friendly and welcoming from the very beginning. He is naturally jovial man with great knowledge of sailing and water sports. The facilities are ideal, nestled in a beautiful bay with an impressive view of the Nephins mountain range. The best thing about our visit was the hilarious stories told with great wit :)

This was our third year back basing our holiday around sailing at the boat club. Such a beautiful spot and a great place to sail. See my earlier review of the tirst time we went. Still a great chance to sail as a family and gain sailing experience without feeling you have to make a hugh investment or that you are not the right type of person. Enjoyable, safe, exhilerating, relaxing, flexible and welcoming. There are plenty of kids and teens that turn up a the club, so if you have a teenager there are opportunities for him/her to mix too. Great instruction and safety also assured.

My fiancee and I are avid adventurers who visited Ireland with zero sailing experience. We scheduled a beginner introduction with Seamus and got much more than we expected. Seamus is a great instructor who catered perfectly to our novice sailing skills and need for an exhilarating experience. He made sure we learned by experience as we spent all of our time on the water. We had a great time and wish we could've stayed an entire week out there. Next time we're in county Mayo we will definitely be back.

Spent a lovely evening here, with group of friends. Children got a good 2 hrs on laser boats, it was a great taster for beginners in a very safe bay. Adults were also catered for with a trip out on a rib to the club's recently built, floating club house. Very unique experience, in a very beautiful part of Mayo. My husband also got a go on a catamaran. I would 100% recommend the club to anyone wanting to try out sailing for the first time or for anyone more experienced also. Seamus and Brian made us feel very safe and at home. Everyone enjoyed it. Great evening.

It was a great few days of sailing. I really enjoyed it. I learned loads of new skills. I was on a catamaran which was very exciting doing over 30 kmh. Seamus and his team are very helpful and enthusiastic. I really recommend doing this to everyone.
