“The staff are so friendly that they never once gave the impression that this was a job – instead they seemed to be having fun right along with us. I do not recall every having such exceptional service. The dinner also exceeded expectations.”

Sailing, Windsurfing and Watersports


The coast south west of Kinsale provides some of the best cruising grounds in Europe.  The Kinsale Yacht Club has been established since 1950 and as a significant sailing centre for many years, hosts some of the country’s largest events.  And only 20 minutes drive away is the Royal Cork Yacht Club which is also the oldest in the world and steeped in history and tradition and hosts the world famous Cork Week Regatta.

We work closely with a number of professional sailing instructors who can give basic tuition and then take the teams on a race in Kinsale Harbour, or who will let the more experienced sailors hire the boats for their own challenges.

Windsurfing and Watersports

Opportunities for watersports abound around Kinsale from waterskiing, powerboating, sea kayaking, river kayaking, windsurfing, canoeing and more – whether you want to go on your own or if you would like some team challenges organised for your group.
