Contacts: Howth Marina VHF #80 tel +353 (0)1 839 27777 http://hyc.ie/marina
Howth is a harbour about five miles north of Dublin on the north side of the Ben of Howth and a mile west of the Nose of Howth. It’s tucked in behind Ireland’s Eye and is well protected from winds in most quarters except that when the wind is in the East the swell in the East Channel has a chance to build up so that the turn to port to enter the harbour will be across the swell and quite exciting!
The harbour is home to both leisure sailors and fishing vessels but their use is delineated by a central pier; fishing vessels use the Western Basin and leisure craft the Inner and Outer Eastern Basins. The channel in to the Marina in the outer basin has been well dredged but at LWS may not be deep enough for deep drafted boats; there have been reports of a mud bank close the channel within the harbour with depths of as little as 1.2m (so with MLWS at 0.5m, if you have a draft of 1.8+, you do the maths!)
The marina here is, along with Malahide Marina, one of Ireland’s finest yachting facilities and a popular spot for yachtsmen from Dublin.
It is a top of the range marina and offers sheltered berths and access to all the services you would normally expect of a top class marina but at a cost marginally less than Malahide. The Marina here is owned by the Howth Yacht Club who must be congratulated on the development; along with the marina they have an impressive Club house which is open to all visiting yachts.
The Yacht Club is housed in quite a large building and has all the usual facilities, in spades; a large bar with several seating areas, an a la carte restaurant, modern changing rooms including a laundrette; it has to be seen to be believed. Obviously such facilities come at a price and if you clew up here you must expect to pay for it, admittedly not quite as much as up the road at Malahide but certainly as much as one would expect in the marinas in the Solent. ... read more
