The Experience

Welcome on board

No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm!

On the Brian Ború we do things differently. We don’t believe in taking ‘passengers’ but instead believe everyone on a sailing vessel should be a participant. From setting and trimming the sails to navigating or taking the wheel, we believe life at sea is always best when everyone contributes what they can to the running of the vessel – not because we need you to, (we can sail the boat alone!), but because we all benefit from working as a team and building a shared experience.

Join us aboard the Brian Ború and you will experience sailing a traditional ship through  Dublin Bay Biosphere and beyond. You will  learn from our experienced local crew and make friends with your fellow sailors.

An active and immersive way to see the magnificent sights of the Bay such as Dalkey Island and Sound, Howth Head, Bailey Lighthouse, Dun Laoghaire, and Dollymount Strand.

Only the Best

 Experienced Local Crew

We share a passion for the seas, sailing and above all else we love traditional sailing ships and the unique opportunities they provide for those who take on the challenge of sailing them. Having spent many years between us planning and delivering multi-week residential youth programs and adult voyages on some of the largest tall ships in the world, we know what it takes to make life on board an engaging, fun and educational environment.
