POLARIS POPCORN is a beautifully restored 17 meter Irish fishing trawler, and she couldn’t be closer to her past.
Polaris was built in Wexford in 1982, replacing a timber fishing boat during a period where Ireland struggled to modernise the offshore fishing fleet.
After a high spec refit in 2019, she was made available for charter as a 2 person hideaway.

The space
Polaris was built in Wexford in 1982, replacing a timber fishing boat during a period where Ireland struggled to modernise the offshore fishing fleet. Her crew would often spend weeks at sea pursuing the dream catch. Six fishermen could bunk down in the cabin that is now a shower room.
Polaris was later retired to a fish farm in Letterfrack on the West coast. She was abandoned in 2008, driven ashore and sank. We rescued her in 2015, refloating her and towing her to our Dock where she was transformed into a studio apartment. We gave her the daring pink livery and the canival deck cover – which reminded locals of a Popcorn stand – a name that stuck!
After a further high spec refit in 2019, she was made available for charter.
Polaris Popcorn rests well in her retirement in The Old Dock, with all mod cons and in impeccable condition – you will enjoy your secluded stay on board; far away from hard work and toil.

I'm a Polish girl living in Ireland for many years, I followed my heart to stay with my charming Irish Captain. I work and play on boats and I manage Escape Rooms on a ship - another unique experience. I love meeting new people and Im very particular and run a tight ship. Being Polish; I am very professional and reliable. I will help you enjoy your stay anyway I can!
