Where can I enjoy sailing in Dublin?

At Royal Irish Yacht Club, you can learn to sail and much more, just see for yourself! And experience the amazing programmes and activities.

Since 1831 the Royal Irish supported many sports racings in Dublin and with the specialised team, you are bound to have a great experience.
