The first sailing club was the Cork Water Club founded in 1720. Southern Ireland Bay Cruises sail between Howth and Dun Laoghaire up to six times a day from March to October.

Sailing in Southern Ireland (SID) Club is a small friendly club based in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Southern Ireland. They offer you the opportunity to sail regularly without having to buy a boat. The club provides a fleet of dinghies (1 and 2 person boats) and three yachts (max 7 persons) for sailing activities and competitions at a very low membership fee.

If you are a beginner, you can sail on our Sigma and Ruffian keelboats with experienced crew to build up your sailing skills and knowledge.
