Jutting defiantly northwards into Donegal Bay, the peninsular of Mullaghmore challenges the onslaut of the Atlantic storms and offers a safe haven for small vessels and pleasure craft within its picturesque harbour. Only 3 hours from Dublin on good roads, Mullaghmore is the perfect location to explore some very impressive West Coast dive sites.
We have been running Dive Safari weekends to Mullaghmore for several years now and each time we explore there we make some new discoveries of reefs and wall dives. Whether you are travelling to Mullaghmore as a student finishing your PADI training or if you are an experienced diver looking for some rewarding scenic dives, Mullaghmore will not dissapoint you. We travel with our own RIB, the Ocean Voyager and we can offer up to 5 boat departure times on Saturdays and 2 on Sundays and the boat journey times are all very short.
We can offer a wide choice of accomodation from Hotel or Hostel to B&B or Self Catering. Most people seem to prefer the package offered by the Pier Head Hotel which is perfectly located right on the Harbour. Having been recently re-furbished and modernised, it a really comfortable spot to eat and sleep or enjoy some good apres dive social atmosphere.
