Irish Whale and Dolphin Group

The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group are dedicated to the conservation and better understanding of cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoise) in Irish waters.

They work in co-operation with industry, fishermen and other groups whose interests may sometimes conflict with those of cetacean conservation. They also work to raise public awareness about cetaceans and how to whale-watch responsibly.

To keep up to date with the latest whale and dolphin sightings around the country, they have a sighting scheme which includes all validated sighting reports from around the Irish coast in the past 20 years.
