The Claddagh Community Boat Club (The Claddagh Boatmen) is dedicated to the restoration and sailing of the traditional Galway work boats known as Galway Hookers. These distinctive boats are an important part of our heritage and we aim to preserve them and bring them back to their full glory as in the days when they plied the routes between the coasts of County Galway and the Aran Islands, transporting turf, seaweed, livestock and other cargo to and from all the coastal villages and towns.

On Culture Night Bádóirí an Cladaig welcome you to their workshop in Galway Docks, where you can see you can see the space where the great craft are built and renovated. You can meet the boatmen, get a guided tour of the premises and see the work taking place – a rare opportunity to get close to the ancient and beautiful sailing heart of Galway. All welcome!
