About your host

I am an artist and boat builder, originally from Dublin. Barcelona has been my home for 10 years. Currachs are a traditional wooden boat from the west coast of Ireland. I have been building currachs for 15 years. I grew up by the sea and began rowing when I was a boy. Rowing is one of the finest strength and conditioning sports on the planet.

What we’ll do

We'll meet at Base Nàutica Municipal, Playa Mar Bella, where there are lockers and changing rooms. Don't forget your sports clothes. After stretching and warming up, we'll take the currach to the sea. The currach is a wooden, fixed-seat rowing boat. I will train you on how to row and navigate. We will row along the coast, taking in the views and the sea life of the Mediterranean, and then return…

Where you'll be

A unique view of the city from the sea - the skyline of Barcelona revealed from a hand-built wooden boat. Rowing on the Mediterranean is a fantastic way to see the city and get away from it. The weather decides which way we go. Depending on the fitness level of the participants, we can row up to 8 kms. We'll spend one to two hours at sea on each trip. Please keep an eye on the weather or message me for alternative hours. Tá failte romhait!
