We had a great 3 hours out at sea, Kevin and Ronan were great fun and we all managed to come back in dry, happy and hungry. Would recommend this to all as a great day out of the office. Hope to do it all again next year. thank you

I was treated to a 3 hour trip on this beautiful boat by a good friend of mine as a thank you present. The day was fantastic. We were Lucky with the excellent Irish weather with the sun shining all day. Our kids were welcome and fruit and soft drinks were supplied. Our skipper Kevin was a truly excellent host,... More

The experience provided by Go Sailing was the best day of my Ireland vacation! As a single woman, I was accommodated on a special sail to Bray where there was an European aerobatic airshow. The boat was beautiful and lunch, desert,refreshments with fun and interesting narration from our skipper made it unforgettable! I cant thank Susan, Kevin enough for a... More

The staff were so friendly and welcoming and did everything to make us comfortable while onboard. The boat is superb, top of the range! I now have a new love for... More

I went out last September & had only read the brochure regarding the cost. I had assumed it would be 35 Euros, however it was 50. That taught me to check out the actual cost & not assume it is as advertised, esp as it may say FROM X amount. To be fair I was offered a full refund, but... More

As someone who loves sailing and sails dinghys in her free time, of course I had to do this. It was really fun, the boat Explorer is a beauty and everyone who wanted to was allowed to drive the boat for a bit. If you didn't want to you could just lay back and relax. The crew pointed out important... More

You want to impress someone, a lady, a bloke, the boss, the in laws, the outlaws, well here's the perfect way. Spend 2 - 2 1/2hrs sailing around Dublin bay on this 53 foot beauty. Does it matter if you don't sail, absolutely not. But you might get sea sick. Not on a sailboat. Scratch that. This is most definitely... More

Our group of 5 friends spent a week on 'Explorer of Westport' in Lanzarote over Hallowe'en. It proved to be a fantastic holiday, enjoyed equally by the experienced sailors and novices. The boat was in perfect condition and Bref was an excellent host. Anchoring overnight was a great experience - especially the pre-breakfast swim and learning to use the paddle... More

We joined Aaron on Explorer for 6 nights sailing out of Villagarcia near Santiago de Compostella. Cruised around the Rias visiting pretty marinas and towns. Aaron arranged the required permits to visit the Islas Cies which was a highlight with amazing scenery and beautiful walks. Fantastic weather was a bonus! Bref and Aaron even caught a Tuna so we had... More
