Boat Hire/Sailing




Sailing Boat Hire:


Derrynane on the Ring of Kerry is an ideal location for all watersport activities with its calm sheltered inlets and safe sandy beaches. The exposed and rugged Atlantic coastline for the more experienced is only a short distance away from Caherdaniel and Derrynane.

We have a selection of boats to rent to suit both beginners and improvers. Rental price includes a wetsuit.


Derrynane boat hireThe Laser Pico dinghy is a small sailboat used primarily for training and day sailing. It can be crewed by one or two children or an adult. Current models come equipped with both a mainsail and a jib, but the jib is so small that it is faster sailed single handed using only the mainsail.



The Topper is an 11 foot sailing dinghy. It is a one-design boat with a large international following, it is also an International class by the ISAF and is an approved youth class of the RYA.


Derrynane sailingThe Dart 16 provides exciting performance, yet can easily be handled by inexperienced crew. The responsiveness is similar to that found on a racing dinghy, yet Dart 16 is exceptionally stable and forgiving.




Derrynane boatsThe Solsa is a perfect fit for one to two adults or an adult and a couple of kids. It is also an ideal boat for smaller kids to learn to sail. The Solsa's Simple Rig sailplan - a sprit pole that holds the sail out to the wind - incorporates only one control rope, and there's no boom. The Solsa is equipped with the self-teaching sailing system known as AutoSail.
