From Dublin, Eye of the Wind will cross back over the Irish Sea and follow the coast of Wales south to its capital, Cardiff on this passage crossing.
Before Eye of the Wind leaves Dublin, be sure to allow plenty of time beforehand to explore the history of the city, enjoy a pint of Guinness and perhaps visit some of the homes of famous writers – Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift or Bram Stoker. Once a Viking settlement, and with a history of unrest in Irish politics, there’s plenty do to and see to immerse yourself in this remarkable city.
Once on board Eye of the Wind, she will sail out of the mouth of the River Liffey, into Dublin Bay and out to open sea. From here she’ll set her sails for St. George’s Channel, with sights set on the magnificent Welsh city of Cardiff. With potential stops along the way such as Aberystwyth, Pembroke and Swansea, this voyage will not only be filled with exhilarating sailing but a great exploration of the West coast of Wales.
With incredible amounts of character, Eye of the Wind has all the modern amenities and an authentic interior, with a teak maritime décor. Oozing with maritime history, the opportunity to sail on Eye of the Wind is one in a lifetime. This beautiful ship is as eye-catching as they get and she has even featured in several movies, including White Squall, due to her breath-taking appearance as a 1911 brig.
This windjammer offers luxurious holidays on board, cruising some of the most stunning locations in the world.
Although the ship has a large, capable engine, traditional sailing is naturally the preferred mode of travel so there is plenty to get stuck into on deck. The crew are extremely experienced and ready to teach you the workings of a classic tall ship, so no prior knowledge is necessary. Join the crew at any number of the large maritime festivals they appear at, cruise the European coast, or relish some winter sun and climb aboard for their voyages in the Caribbean – including a transatlantic crossing back from the Caribbean to Portugal.
Thanks to the 6 luxurious cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, Eye of the Wind can sleep a total of 16 guests ensuring ocean passages can be travelled in true comfort. A large dining area, library and sun deck offer a multitude of different spaces to unwind and to get to know your fellow guests and crew.
