Nice site of PSS by an electric flier with much info about flying in Dublin Mountains, Kilakea, and Wicklow area. Some interesting info about gliding in the west of Ireland also.
  Dublin Kestrel Model Flying Club

 

Model flying club at Brittas, Co Wicklow, near Tallaght, Dublin. This is a rare "engine model club" which has a flying site that happens to be suitable for slope soaring in a southerly wind.
  Irish Hobbyshops :
Green Hobby & Model

 

The hobby shop at Harolds Cross, Dublin. This model shop has a big stock of model airplanes, and they are model fliers themselves. The prices are ok and the backup service & info is excellent. One of the best Irish sources for hard to get items like balsa, fibreglass & carbon fibre, depron etc.
  The Model Centre Good model shop at Capel Street, Dublin. Mainly glow engine models. No website available.
