Dive into History

Ireland & Northern Ireland

When these pages are complete (hopefully soon) then each of these boats will have its own "Dive" page with photos, maps, and contact information. Until then, the links simply link to the respective U-boat profiles.

Discovered in 1985 by Colin Barnes it has become known as the Glandore sub. The boat lies at about 150 feet (44m) depth. The boat is only 2 miles off the village of Union Hall in Southern Ireland. This boat is regularly dived onto and it completely intact. A torpedo is right next to the hull on the ocean floor.

Possible Dive sites

U-296 (?)
This boat was sunk about 10-20 miles north of Portstewart, on the northern coast of Northern Ireland and should be in relatively shallow (50-100m) waters. I don't know if this one has been discovered and dived.
