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.

Birthday Party and School Programmes

They offer Kayaking Birthday Parties, Programmes for Primary and Secondary School and a Saturday Sailing during the School Term Programme.

  • Please contact their offices for more information, bookings and slots available.
