Easy. Check cft.ie for a list of all the Irish Underwater council affiliated clubs in Ireland. If you're close to the mid-west, go to burrensubaquaclub.com for details how to join our Co. Clare based one.

It used to be that easy - but the link has been replaced with a google map with no club info. Frustrating as 90% of our new trainees come from the web. Luckily our website is great - and comes up easily in google (and linked here thanks!) but CFT.ie was a great place to find a club in your area.

Ive mailed the webadmin - but i recon it could be a while before its back.

I've been finding it hard to get a response from any diving clubs I contacted. I'm an experienced warm water diver (working on getting the PADI Master Diver qualification). And would like to get involved in club to get CMAS / CFT qualified?

I am based in the Raheny / Howth Dublin 5 region on the North side. Anyone out there in or can reccomend a club?

re:

Are there any clubs around Dublin that specialize in snorkeling? There's a few of us that are really keen to try it. Not too much interest in full on diving from all quarters I'm afraid . I guess it's the outlay.

Give CFT a ring and ask that question. There used to be, might still be, a club for snorkellers in Kildare:

Are there any Padi clubs out there operating throughout the whole week? I'm based in Offaly so anything within easy driving distance would be good!
