Galway Hooker Boats have been around for over 400 years. Our fathers & great-great grandfathers fished in them. They used to be the lifeblood of the community. You will be in safe hands with The Oliver Family, their marine history extends over 100 years, with ancestors setting off from Galway Bay in the now famous Hooker boats.  They are passionate about their sailing tradition and endeavour to share their heritage by training small groups to sail and maintain these historic boats. This practical four-week (every Sunday morning) course is aimed at beginners or seasoned sailors who wish to learn more about Galway’s traditional sail/workboats.

.

This experience is part of the life and soul of old Galway, with potential to inspire a lifetime of stories and shared experiences that will feed the soul in years ahead.
