Yacht charter Ireland Ireland In the past, people used to say that if someone has once been to Ireland, he will never forget it. It turns out that to say that of Ireland is by no means an exaggeration. The Green Island, as it is commonly called, is associated mainly with the wildlife, the Celtic past, an intriguing and diverse culture, lively music, and obviously whisky and Guinness, Ireland’s most popular beer. The Ocean, tides, a longwave trough, a varied coastline and moorings with buoys all make a cruise around Ireland an instance of genuine sailing experience and an unforgettable adventure.

With the capital in Dublin, Ireland is situated in the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the islands forming the archipelago of the British Isles, separated from its largest island, Great Britain, by the Irish Sea. It is the third largest island in Europe (after Iceland and Great Britain). Above all, it has a spectacular landscape with dominant mountains, widespread moors, and picturesque lowlands, as well as the culture that attract sailors and tourists to the Green Island. The varied coastline, which measures over 3,200 km and contains numerous bays (such as Donegal, Clew, Galway, Shannon, or Dingle), is also Ireland’s great asset. In the west of the island spread rocky ria coasts, characteristic for their long inlets spreading diagonally to the shoreline. Numerous islands, peninsulas, and tips are frequent here, as well.

What affects the Irish temperate maritime climate most are south-westerly air masses formed over the Atlantic Ocean and a moderating influence of the North Atlantic Current (the Gulf Stream), which wash the north-west coast of the island. January and February are the coldest months with temperatures oscillating between 4 °C and 7 °C, while the warmest ones are July and August, when temperatures reach 14 °C-16 °C.
The stretch of the coast from Cork Harbour to the town of Dingle in County Kerry is the most interesting and popular region with sailors. It is possible to set sail in Baltimore or Kinsale, which are situated south of Cork. While cruising, short stops at waterside restaurants and pubs are just a must.
