Sailing in South West Ireland
During the summer sail South West Ireland on our luxury Hallberg-Rassy yacht 'Merlin'.
Whether you choose our RYA training courses or adventure sailing
holidays you will discover our local bays and outlying islands in West Cork. On our luxury skippered charter day sails and Wild Atlantic Way cruises you can sit back while we take the strain and allow you to take in our dramtic seascapes such as the Fastnet Rock.
We were brilliantly looked after by Chris and Aideen on board Merlin
Chris and Aideen would like to welcome you aboard Merlin, a beautiful luxury Hallberg-Rassy 46. Merlin is very well equipped with a large spacious saloon and room to sleep four guests in two twin cabins.
Our concept of cruising is a combination of great days sailing with enough time to relax and explore the places we visit. Join us on our adventures to interesting destinations both in Ireland and The Canaries. These locations allow us the freedom to use local marinas or anchor in secluded bays.
Sailing in Ireland
From May to October Carbery Sailing is based in the heart of West Cork on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way. Sailing in West Cork you will be breathing our clean air, gazing into a pristine sea rich in marine life and by night taking in the Milky Way with our dark skies. It is also the perfect place to learn to sail or exploring the Wild Atlantic Way under sail. Our visitors from the UK, Europe and America, love the fine scenery, fantastic food and great company they find here after a day out on the water.
Sailing in the Canaries
From November to April we relocate to Tenerife and the warmth of the Canaries. Here you can take your RYA training course or explore under sail the Canary Archipelago with our adventure sailing holidays. Relax and enjoy the many local restaurants serving wonderful fresh food while you explore many of the unique islands we visit.
RYA Sailing Courses
Carbery Sailing is an RYA Recognised Training Centre providing RYA courses from beginners learning to sail to experienced sailors. Our sailing courses range from Start Yachting to Competent Crew and Day Skipper for those looking to skipper a yacht by day. Our Coastal Skipper course is for more experienced sailors looking to extend their cruising range and make extended coastal passages by day and night.
In October and April we provide Ocean Sailing experiences for those who need to gain valuable sea miles with 640nm+ qualifying passages for their Yachtmaster Offshore/Ocean qualifications. We also have short ocean passages of 300nm for those with a more adventurous spirit to discover the rhythm of life on the ocean wave between Tenerife and Madeira.
