The Fastnet Marine and Outdoor Education Centre is located on the Mizen Peninsula in Schull Harbour in the South West of Ireland. Schull harbour is sheltered and leads into a bay full of islands to explore; the sheltered waters of Roaringwater Bay are an ideal place to learn how to sail or train to be an Olympian.


There are dedicated facilities which offer a range of comprehensive courses, whether you are an experienced sailor and want to improve your skills or you just want to enjoy the beauty of West Cork and go for a day’s sailing in the bay.

 The team run sailing programs during the summer months suitable from about 10 years upwards.

LifeJackets are provided on site; wetsuits are recommended.
