Crosshaven is home to the world’s oldest yacht club, the ‘Royal Cork’, founded in 1720. The club is now surrounded by extensive serviced marinas, boatyards and a chandlery. Prestigious world yacht racing championships now hosted by Royal Cork Yacht Club in Crosshaven are fast becoming the blue water sailors’ favourite stop-off along Europe’s western seaboard.
Crosshaven offers many facilities including shore or deep-sea angling, wreck diving and boat or yacht charter, whilst also a paradise for the walking enthusiast with routes for all tastes and levels of fitness. Nearby scenic Church bay, Myrtleville and Weaver’s Point with sand and pebble beaches, are popular bathing places and attract many visitors on warm summer days.
Crosshaven is about lifestyle, the pleasure of leisure is a way of life here.
