Scuba Diving Galway

Jacques Cousteau: “Some of the best diving in the world is at the northern side of the Dingle Peninsula where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Brandon Mountains in a landscape of exceptional beauty.”

National Geographic journalist Jennifer S Holland was as impressed as Cousteau: “I’m floored by anemones that gleam as pink as bubble gum, as green as a lime snow cone, so orange I can almost taste the juicy pulp.”


Did you know that there are over 10 000 vessels sunk around Irish coast in the past hundred years? Where else would you have the choice of diving a scuttled U-boat, a mined WWI battleship or a sunken bulk carrier, which is the largest wreck by tonnage in the world?
