"Sailing is for everyone to enjoy, and we really love to share the experience and sheer pleasure that only sailing can give you. We're very fortunate to be based in such a rich and beautiful cruising ground, that has great access to the waters of West Cork and beyond."- James Lyons, Principal of Sovereign Sailing
West Cork can easily be considered as a separate region in its own right. It's starting point being here in Kinsale, the gourmet capital of Ireland, then running along the coast in a westerly direction to Dursey Island at the tip of the majestic Beara Peninsula. The further West you sail, the more you can't help but notice how this wonderful landscape and coastline becomes increasingly more wild and rugged.
We've created our own mini guide for you to read, which illustrates just some of the top attractions, activities and landmarks to visit when you're sailing in South West Ireland.VIEW GUIDE
