Scuba Diving in Ireland
Dive Site: Myles Creek
Location: Kilkee, County Clare
Depth: 18 - 20 metres (60 - 65 feet)
Visibility: 10 - 15 metres (30 - 50 feet), depending on weather
Drop into 8 metres, follow the gulley to a beautiful drop off down to 18 metres. Follow reef base around until you reach dive time or air limit. Lots of lobster, starfish, congers. Dived many times, each has been a joy.

This is a tricky site to get into in rough weather as the boat has to navigate between rocks. You also have to be careful where you surface, for the same reason. I recommend that you swim for 3 mins away from the reef for your safety stop.
You can get a bit more depth if you follow the main reef around to the left, after about 10 mins into the dive (as the reefs rounds a corner) leave your back to the reef. This will take you to another dive site called the crabs back where you can get about 30 metres.
A lovely dive if you have a mix of diver experience on your dive boat.
