Donegal Bay Rib Club Ltd

Donegal Bay Rib Club Ltd was founded in 2008. It is a non-profit making organisation and a company limited by guarantee registered at Companies Office, Dublin.


The Club comprises a group of RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) enthusiasts and boat owners from the Donegal Bay area. At present it has a membership of aproximately 50 persons and is very much family orientated.

The Club is affiliated to the ISA (Irish Sailing Association) and operates mainly from Creevy Pier and Ballyshannon, Co Donegal with weekly boat trips to places such as Mullaghmore, Innis Murray Island, Inniscrone, Killybegs, Inver, Slieve League, Arranmore Island, Burtonport and so on. In 2008 our annual Rib Raid took us to Islay in Scotland and this year we went to the Isle of Man. The 2009 'expedition' saw two baots with 10 crew travel to Fort William, Scotland, a round trip of about 220 miles.
