Holiday in Ireland

Hi all

Looking to have a couple of weeks in Ireland next year will be renting a cottage and will take our SIB want to put the boat in and leave it in for the duration I like the look of the roundstone area but anywhere really anyone have any info dont want to be governed by Atlantic seas so sheltered waters would be good want to fit the boat in around having a good look round never been there only two short trips for work.

Thanks in advance Jeff

Ireland

Good idea
Roaring Water Bay in Cork is your ideal location. Sheltered by islands and with many cruising destinations you will be able to use the boat in everything but stormy conditions. There are endless free launching spots for a small rib and loads of harbors to visit. Google Schull, Baltimore, Crookhaven. Plus all the inhabited islands and of course the iconic Fastnet Rock. And oh, did I mention that it is prime whale watching location.
You will not be disappointed.

Cork is much easier to get to as well, I wouldn't like to have to pull a trailer to roundstone, lots of twists and ups a downs when I drove there :-)

Hello Jeff

Baltimore would be a superb location for you .You would be able to pop over to Sherkin Island for a bit of dinner or to the beautiful beaces .Baltimore has great restaurants fab launching facilities all free and loads of space for the car and trailer .
I can highly recommend Bushes bar that over looks the harbour for a few pints and then take the short trip over to Sherkin for the music session in the hotel .Dont worry there will be loads of Ribs going to and from all night if you want to have a few drinks yourself. We always take the trip out to the Fastnet lighthouse to do a bit of whale watching and have never been disappointed. Dont hesitate to give me a ring if you need any more advice .

Thanks very much for the tips like the sound of Baltimore and your right, right up our street love a beer & a good meal also the whale watching the one thing I haven't seen in all my years of boating & diving I will start to look for a nice cottage and get in booked.

Cheers Jeff

Lough Derg Terryglass

As a non local about 7 or 8 years back we spent a week or so in a rental cottage just south of Terryglass. It was down a track and jut a few meters to Lough Derg where there was a small private jetty and a rough slip. The couple who owned it lived next door and also looked after a couple of boats that were included in the price. It was not that expensive. We took a small rib with us as well and had a great time. The Lough is big enough to take sometime to explore and there was a good pub in Terryglass called the Derg. We also enjoyed a trip down to Garrykennedy at the southern end of the Lough. I can't remember what the cottage is called and it may be that they no longer rent it out but I would be suprised if there weren't other cottages in area. I think you could also get a birth in the public harbour in either Terryglass itself or one of the others around the Lough if you couldnt find a cottage with a morring or slip included. But I am sure some of the locals who use the sight could give you far better advice than I.
