Schull Harbour

Always a hive of activity...

The safe and surprisingly sheltered harbour, open only to gales from the south, is home to many waterborne activities. It has a small but busy inshore fishing fleet and a few trawlers operating further offshore. There is a modern fish processing plant at the root of the pier where you can buy fresh fish in opening hours.

Ferry trips to Cape Clear Island leave the pier daily throughout the summer. Small boats can be hired from  Schull Watersports Centre on the harbour front offer a good range of chandlery items. Diving can be arranged with Divecology on Schull Main Street (028 28943). Sea angling trips can be arranged with Blue Thunder Charters (086 804 5351). There is also kayaking tuition available in the summer months. Rossbrin Boatyard, three miles to the east in Rossbrin Cove, offers slipping and launching facilities up to 16 tons, plus winter boat storage and all maintenance and repairs. The Schull Rowing Club also have their HQ on the harbour frontage.

Schull Harbour Sailing Club is very active with weekend inshore racing throughout the summer season. The Fastnet International Schools Regatta take place annually in July, an event for young sailors who compete from all over Europe. Calves Week takes place in early August annually, the high point of the SHSC racing programme, ansd this has beome a major event in the Irish racing programme. It is followed by Schull Harbour Regatta at the weekend with fun for all both ashore and afloat.
