Our Easter Sailing Courses are the perfect way to brush off those winter cobwebs and prepare yourself for the summer sailing season ahead. Courses run 9am to 5pm each day for ages 7-18 Years. The 4-6 Years Sea Explorers group will run on the second week (18th-21st) from 9am-12.30pm. We’re also really excited to announce that participants on our children’s sailing and watersports programme will have the chance to learn sailing through Irish in an immersive language week.

Children’s Sailing & Watersports Courses
Over the two weeks we’ll be running our ever-popular children’s sailing and watersports programmes. They’re sure to challenge and entertain your child, with the success of the programme rooted in the dynamic of dividing children first by age, then by experience, ensuring that every child is learning with their own peer group.
- Easter Course 1: Monday 10th April to Thursday 13th April (No Course on Good Friday)
- Easter Course 2: Tuesday 18th April to Friday 21st April (No Course on Easter Monday)

Learn Sailing Through Irish - 11-14 Years Group
We’re really excited to announce that over the second week of Easter (Tuesday 18th – Friday 21st April) we’ll have a dedicated group for 11-14 years children who want to learn their sailing through Irish. All the instructors teaching this group are fluent in Irish, and will be doing all of the teaching through Irish and encouraging the students to use the week to practise their abilities in Irish. Pricing is the same as for our other programmes, and all the discounts still apply.
Please note, this programme is currently set up for the 11-14 years age group. If your child is in the 7-10 years or 15-17 years age ranges and would like to sail through Irish please get in touch, and if there’s sufficient demand we’ll set up another group.
4-6 Years Sea-Explorers
The famous Sea-Explorers group for 4-6 year olds is back this Easter. The programme will run from Tuesday the 18th to Friday the 21st of April from 9am-12.30pm each day. The price for the week is €76 per student.
The group will go rock pooling on Salthill beach exploring the habitats and life of the mussel, limpet, barnacle, crab and other marine life creatures which are washed up by the tide on a daily basis. This is followed by an art and craft session. The highlight of the day for the Sea Explorers is the boat trip in Dun Laoghaire Harbour. We see the seals, jellyfish, limpets, barnacles and seaweed living and growing in their natural habitats. Our specially designed launch boat with a pirate flag make it an adventure children thoroughly enjoy.
