Sailing Ireland is an Irish Sailing Assocation (ISA) accredited sailing school and yacht charter company.
Established in June 2003 Sailing Ireland offers a wide range of courses to suit all levels of experience from
the beginner to the seasoned sailor. We aim to create a safe, fun learning environment for our students
where questions are welcomed and students can learn by actively doing, rather than just watching.
By undertaking a course with Sailing Ireland students can grow their love of sailing, the sea and their
newly found sense of adventure.
About the Skipper - Dermot Greer
Owner and principle skipper Dermot Greer is an RYA/ISA Yachtmaster Instructor with over twenty years sailing experience.
Dermot has sailed all around Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales and well as in the Mediteranean and the USA.
Dermot has always loved the water, enjoying swimming and diving before learning to sail in the early 1990's.
His hobby became a passion and Dermot decided to make a life change.
He founded Sailing Ireland in June 2003 to share his love of sailing.
Since then, Sailing Ireland has taught hundreds of students how to sail and the year after year repeat customers are
testament to the high level of professionalism and great teaching on offer.
Sailing Ireland do not believe in the "Boot Camp" approach and prefer to sail to the conditions and with the enjoyment
and safety of the student as the main priority. Ample shore leave is granted on the courses so that the crew can relax
and enjoy the benifits of a new landfall and to sample its delights.
