Information
CORK
Gateway to Irelandís premier tourist region and nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Cork is the countryís third largest city. Dating back to the sixth century when the monks of St. Finbarr first settled there, the city began life as an island. It took until the early tenth century to begin to develop significantly when Viking Settlers founded a trading port. Today Cork City spans both sides of the River Lee and is a thriving business centre as well as a popular holiday destination.

The cityís nautical roots have left an indelible mark and the stunning natural harbour remains one of Irelandís most important seaports. It also attracts thousands of visitors from the yachting and boating fraternity drawn by the choice of both river and sea exploration. Moorings are plentiful, marine services extensive and when you feel like some time on dry land you have the fascinating city itself.

The hilly town centre with its steep winding streets and friendly vibrant atmosphere simply oozes cultural magic. Cork seems to be permanently celebrating something. And with a calendar of festivals that include, Jazz, Arts, Choral and Film itís not that far from the truth. The hub of the city is Patrick Street, where youíll find a wonderful choice of shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs.

Heritage sites abound and youíd be hard pushed to see them all in one visit. They include, Crawford Art Gallery, Butter Museum, Firkin Crane Centre, Triskel Arts Centre, the Cork Public Museum, Cork City Gaol, the Cork Vision Centre, Blackrock Castle Heritage Park and the Ballincollig Gunpowder Mills. There is always an awe inspiring piece of historic architecture just around the corner, from the lovely Shannon Church to the magnificent City Hall, the incredible St. Finbarrís Cathedral to the University college with it eautiful tree line quadrangle.

Cork is in many ways the heart and soul of Ireland and despite ití size it has somehow retained much of its humble roots. The people are amongst the friendliest you could wish to meet anywhere in the world and there is literally just too much to do whatever your tastes. If you really want to discover what makes Ireland what it is today, go visit Cork. I guarantee you will be back for more.

Would like to say Dave Hyde boat delivery service is one of the best delivery skippers I have come across. He looked after our boat as if it were his own and his knowledge of the sea is vast. He willingly shared his knowledge with us and we have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone..
Thanks Dave

I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

Baltimore Yacht Charters
This part of the south west coast of Ireland is dotted with islands, many of which are now uninhabited, perfect for peaceful sailing holidays. Others, including Cape Clear, Sherkin and Heir Islands, have ferry access to the mainland.

The Fastnet Rock, west of Cape Clear, is Ireland's most southerly lighthouse and marks the halfway point in the famous biannual Fastnet Race for yachts.

Castletownshend, Schull, Goleen and Crookhaven are just some of the West Cork towns and villages to which Inishbeg sails on day charters. On weekend sailing holidays, Bantry, Glengarriff and Bere Island are within easy reach. Cruising further north to the Skelligs and Dingle is possible if you have a week or more aboard the yacht.

Your sailing holiday in West Cork, Ireland will be aboard Inishbeg, a brand new Bavaria 50, the flagship of the Bavaria range. A 50-footer, Inishbeg is designed for comfort and performance. Accommodation on board is luxurious and the safety, communications and navigation technology is top of the range.

Wreck Hunter Sea Angling Charters
Wreck Hunter is a new custom built Wildcat 107 Catamaran from Safehaven Marine, Cobh . She has twin 370Hp Yanmar Diesels (up to 27.5 knots max!), a huge amount of rail and deck space, and a wide band of economic hull speeds. She has superb Seakeeping qualities, as the Cat hull form gives impressive stability, deck space, and speed, with no slamming, and very little spray, even at speed, due to the symmetric twin hull design. Angling on the Drift, and at Anchor, you will not believe how comfortable the boat is to fish from.
The boat was designed for comfortable Sea angling and has a Galley with Gas hob, Microwave, Fridge, Freezer, and hot and cold running water. Ample Tea and Coffee are always available. In the Cabin, there is a 17‚ÄĚ TV with DVD, and the Aft Deck Colour Video camera captures all the action astern (a DVD of trip will be available, on request) .
The Toilet / Shower facilities are accessed directly from after deck, for convenience. Long side curtains can be slid out over the after deck, to protect the angler from the variable Irish weather. There is more than 8 feet of space at the rails for each of the 12 anglers.
