Fall in love with the British Isles all over again by discovering our pick of the best places to drop the hook.
Skerries Bay, Ireland
The fairly sheltered Skerries Bay can be susceptible to northerlies but its close proximity to the quaint town of Malahide, and its clear waters, make it an attractive anchorage.
Many boats, including some rather intimidating trawlers, moor up at the pier but if you anchor in the bay you get the best of both worlds. Drop anchor in 3m of water and jump in the tender and head to one of the many delightful pubs.
