About us

Enjoy the location, enjoy the atmosphere

Situated at the corner of picturesque Jackson’s Bay, Barry Yacht Club has looked out between the breakwaters since 1928. With its distinctive facade and superb facilities, it welcomes members and non members both with, and without their boats. It’s a great place to meet up in beautiful surroundings.
