Irish National Sailing and Powerboat School


Watching youngsters grow in confidence, as they master the art of sailing, is one of the great rewards for the staff at the Irish National Sailing and Powerboat School. 

Children’s courses 

Their children’s courses will entertain, challenge and stimulate your children as they learn how to master a sailing dinghy afloat - and have fun along the way. 

The success of the popular children's programme is rooted in the dynamic of dividing children into groups of their own age bracket and secondly, within these groups, children are divided according to their sailing experience. 

All experience levels are catered for, and every child will be challenged within their level of ability. 

The age groups are 4-6 years, 7-10 years, 11-14 years and 15-17 years. Children are taught in a pressure-free, relaxed and fun environment. 

Summer Sailing Camp Bookings – Now Available for Bookings! 

As the summer months are quickly approaching, parents are starting to search for fun and engaging activities to keep their children occupied during the break. If you're looking for something that combines excitement and learning, the Irish National Sailing & Powerboat School have just the thing for you - a week-long Summer Sailing Camp! 

Our week-long sailing courses are designed for children aged 7 and above, and they are perfect for both beginners and experienced sailors. The courses will run from 6th June until the end of August, with Sea Explorers starting from 19th June. 

The courses will take place from Monday to Friday (except on bank holiday weeks when they will run from Tuesday to Friday). The timing of the course is also convenient, with classes starting at 9am and ending at 5pm. Sea Explorers will run from 9am to 12.30pm, giving younger children a taste of sailing without overwhelming them. 

The cost for the sailing courses is very reasonable, with €265 per week for children aged 7-10, 11-14, and 15+. The Sea Explorers course is available at a cost of €140 per week, providing a fun and affordable option for younger children.
