Ireland's National Seabed Mapping Project: INSS and INFOMAR image

INFOMAR is the national programme to survey Ireland's seabed.  Products include a series of bathymetric and seabed substrate charts for coastal and offshore waters and these data, along with raw multibeam data, sample data and GIS data, are freely available to view and download.
