Dive Dublin

Dublin Bay offers numerous good dive sites accessible from shore and boat. The season usually runs from early April till mid October during which time the visibility averages about 3 to 8 meters with temperatures from 8 to 14 degrees centigrade. We dive all year round but during the winter, easterly gales tends to limit local diving.

During the season, we offer boat diving from our three RIBs to all the best sites, Dalkey Island and the Muglins Rock lies within easy reach of the Dive Centre (20 minutes). Depth ranges from 8 to 25 meters and there is excellent drift diving opportunities as well as safe sheltered sites suitable for beginners.If you haven't dived in Irish type conditions before, remember that you will need to complete a Local Orientation dive as your first step before diving regularly with us.

There are several wrecks to visit, weather permitting, these include the "MV Leinster" which sank in 1918 off the Kish Bank and the "Bolivar" which sank in 1947. Marine life is excellent throughout the Bay with shoals of Pollack and plenty of anemones and crustaceans, we also have a friendly seal population with numerous underwater encounters. For details on the most popular sites we visit in the Bay area checkout our Dublin Bay Map and for this week's diving see our Dive Planner.
