Private hire


Ireland’s west coast has always emanated an otherworldly sense; unchanged by modern life, yet changing in every moment as light and wildlife sweeps across its rugged landscape. From the ocean, you will see a host of marine life, including seal colonies, and watch  indigenous bird species navigate the weather-beaten islands scattered around the bay. Like the islands themselves, the people have been shaped by the forces of nature and the grace of the sea. The crew onboard will share stories of the long-held beliefs and local customs that forged relationships to the land and sea.
