The History of the Vessel

The Brian Ború, named after the last High King of Ireland, is a beautiful wooden-hulled, traditionally-built and rigged gaff ketch. Originally launched in 1961, she worked as a herring ring-netter up until 1989, and as a general fisher, up until her decommissioning in 2006. She was bought in 2011 by Tony McLoughlin who having found her in disrepair and with the help of his sons carefully restored her. Following a ‘Leader’ funded restoration and conversion project in 2014, she now operates under Irish license as the sole Passenger and Sail Training Vessel of her type around the island of Ireland, carrying up to 12 passengers and 3 crew.

Dublin Under Sail owners Michael Byrne and Jonathan O’Brien are entrepreneurs with a background in tall ships and a commitment to social inclusion.
