It gives me great pleasure as Commodore of the Royal Irish Yacht Club to welcome you to the Club's website which I hope you will find informative and helpful. The Royal Irish Yacht Club is situated in a central location in Dun Laoghaire Harbour with excellent access and visiting sailors can be sure of a special welcome.

The Club was founded in 1831 and features the first purpose-built Yacht Clubhouse in the world - for the full Club History click here. The building is now a listed structure and retains to this day all its original architectural features combined with state of the art facilities for sailors both ashore and afloat.
