"The Galway hooker is a traditional Irish boat used in Galway off the west coast of Ireland. The hooker was developed for the strong seas there. It is identified by its sharp, clean entry, bluff bow and raked transom. Its sail plan consists of a single mast with a main sail and two foresails. Traditionally, the boat is black (being coated in pitch) and the sails are a dark red-brown.

Recently there has been a major revival of and renewed interest in the Galway hooker, and the boats are still being painstakingly constructed. The festival of Cruinniú na mBád is held each year, when boats race across Galway Bay from Connemara to Kinvara on the Galway/Clare county boundary."


The Irish Galway Hooker Collection was designed in 2014 by Deirdre during an unforgettable Summer in Connemara in the West of Ireland.


The Collection has travelled all over the World and reminds our customers of this beautiful and most magical part of Ireland.
