Howth Yacht Club - offering businesses the opportunity for valuable sports sponsorship as well as corporate partnership which can be utilised for bespoke events such as product/brand launches, team-building days and customer relations exercises.

Howth is acknowledged as one of Europe’s most outstanding sailing event locations and HYC has previously hosted seven World and European Championships in the past, and countless regional, national and international events over the years.

One of Ireland’s biggest sailing clubs, Howth Yacht Club is also one of the longest established, dating back to 1895, and today has some 1,500 members who enjoy year-round sailing and state-of-the-art facilities.

Winner of the Irish ‘Sailing Club of the Year’ Award on three occasions and regarded as one of the premier racing clubs on the Irish sailing scene, HYC is highly active at all levels of the sport and its members have won numerous national and international championships. Family membership is a central core of the club, which has a large number of junior members as a result.

The Club has gained a reputation as an ideal location for dinners, presentations, meetings, special occasions such as weddings and anniversaries, and as a venue with a difference for corporate events such as management team meetings and product launches. Howth can be easily reached by car or by DART - the railway station is a two-minute walk from the clubhouse. HYC would now like to offer you and your business partners the opportunity to avail of these outstanding facilities through a variety of corporate options.

These include a distinctive Continental-style clubhouse with panoramic views, modern changing and showering amenities, a 300-boat marina and a large boat-park.
