Hi Bob,
No, It was the 11 metre Redbay that caught my eye.

Ireland west coast

Your pictures look great and Id like to ask if you may be able to point me in the right direction.

Whilst we keep a 6.0m rib down in Spain and enjoy regular breaks down there we also like to go away with the Dog. Dogs have to have holidays as well!!!

We have done the Great Glen but the last two years we have been to the River Shannon firstly on a hired cruiser but this year we rented a chalet on Loch Derg near Terryglass. It was great and came complete with its own jetty and fishing boats. We have taken with us an elderly 2.8 Avon Rib with an 8hp which has been great for our twins that are now 13 but they are outgrowing it. Atached are some pics.

We thought of retiring the 2.8 and getting something 4.5-5.5m and next year going to the west coast. We drove round the Burren and liked the look of Kinvarra but thought that from the map that Gallway and the Lettermore Island area looked really interesting.

Can you recommend a good cursing area which is not to exposed where there is a slip and possibly a mooring we could use for a week. We would then have to seek out a cottage we could rent that allows dogs. Not too much to ask for I suppose!

From what I can tell you are a little further north.

And suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks

Hi Jon.esp
I would agree that the area around Lettermore is a great place to cruise around.You can look for somewhere to rent around Rossaveel which is a fishing port and the home of the Aran Islands ferry terminal.There is a slip at Cashla,The roads are narrow and twisty but nobody is in a hurry!If you have a nice calm day a trip to the Aran Islands just follow the ferry!Its 13 nm to the large Island.If the weather is a bit rough you can explore the inlets just bring a good large scale map.Usually this area is exposed in SW winds.Nearby villages to search for a house, cottage are Carroroe,etc have a look at a road map too give you an idea of the area.Dogs should not be a problem usually a cleaning deposit may be requested.If you need any other info I will be happy to help
Regards
