Sailing Week in South West Ireland

This will be the next stage in Brighton Belle's Ireland tour. We shall make a 7 day cruise from Bantry in South West Ireland, around this rugged and beautiful coastline to Cork, sailing on the lovely Brighton Belle . Join us.

You will meet the boat in Bantry on Saturday 6th of June, so would probably fly to Cork and take the bus to Bantry. Or we could arrange to share a hire car.

The week will  be spent gently cruising this most beautiful coastal area, stopping in secluded anchorages or one of the many picturesque fishing ports and exploring this remote area of Ireland with visits to markets, pubs and restaurants etc.

Whales and dolphins are common in this area in June so I am particularly looking forward to taking some time out to meet them.

We will eventually leave Brighton Belle in Cork, Crosshaven on Saturday 13th June. Return flights from Cork to Gatwick are available with Ryan Air.

The cost for the 7 days will be £385 per person. The cost of the boat is calculated on a per person basis so that is the amount you will pay even if we are only 4 or 5. We will also share the cost of food and drink and mooring fees between us all. Travel costs to and from the boat are down to you.

Brighton Belle, is an Oyster 55 foot ketch built to the highest standards. She is well maintained and very well equipped. She has very comfortable accommodation with 8 berths in 4 cabins and 2 heads with showers. You can learn more about her at

What will you need? 
The usual selection of warm and cool outdoor clothing and some good waterproofs. Hopefully being glorious summer you wont need them but it gets chilly at night. A sleeping bag and towel. Some euros and sterling and finally, a smile.
It would be great if you could come. If you are interested in an Irish adventure, send an email and I will fill in the details.
