“ Dave Hanley's sailing trips out of Dun Laoghaire are the perfect way to spend your time on the sea, whether you are a complete beginner (like me), or an experienced sailor, you will really enjoy your adventure with the amiable host! The hours just fly by, as you sail and chat, helping with ropes and sails, or even steering! It's really lovely to be out on the open water, sailing around, looking at all the beautiful coastal scenery and sometimes seeing a race or 2! Then not forgetting the welcome cuppa and biscuits! What more could anyone want? ☺ Can't wait for the next sail - Thanks so much Dave! ”

“ Highly recommended.A lovely evening's sail around Dublin bay in interesting and engaging company.Dave was equal parts skipper and host and excelled at both.He made a genuine and successful effort to make everyone feel comfortable and was a natural at instructing everyone in individual tasks.We all got hands on in different crew positions according to our comfort levels and he was very encouraging about giving things a try.Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get out on the water in a very safe and relaxed atmostphere and see what it's all about. ”

“ I had my first experience in sailing last week-end and I was trilled!!!! I was looking forward to navigate for a such a long time and to have the opportunity to be on the sea and to feel the sea and the wind differently as on earth. The organizer is a really good fellow and I met very nice people during the activity. Once a new sailing session is available, I will go for it!!!! Many thanks David for this incredible experience and for sharing your passion to the participants. ”
