A lifeboat crew in Cork were sent out to assist a 33ft fishing vessel, which had lost all power.
The callout came just after 6.00pm on Friday during a severe weather warning for Storm Hannah.
The lifeboat crew from Castletownbere RNLI battled sea conditions reaching force nine to assist the vessel, which had two people onboard.
Once on scene in Bere Haven Harbour, the RNLI crew quickly took the vessel under tow and brought it safely to shore where the crew could seek shelter.
Commenting on the callout, Castletownbere RNLI lifeboat operations manager Paul Stevens said: "Conditions are very challenging off shore this evening and the crew did a great job in bringing everyone home safe.
"The waves are very high and there are strong winds blowing.
"We would advise everyone to seek shelter and not attempt to go out during the weather warning."
