Approach

We have been warned that there is a scattering of pot buoys (some submerged at HW) in the offing to this harbour so a good look out is advised and it would be risky approaching in the dark. ... read more

Berthing, Mooring & Anchoring

The main berthing area is in the marina or on its long pontoon on the north bank. The marina may put you on the pontoon in the fish dock but you will be well aware of the commercial nature of that area from the smell of rotten fish. ... read more

Update Summer 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 11th Jul 2019
These notes were reviewed in July 2019 (just after the entry below) We've changed the price structure and noted that the fish dock is now run by the same people as the Marina. The note about sea snail pots below puzzled us but they actually do fish for sea snails with them and export them to France. New charts have been uploaded.
Visit en route to South Coast Cornwall July 2019
Written by Collenan | 9th Jul 2019
Niall was very helpful and met us on arrival, We berthed at the sea end of the long riverside pontoon as our draft was 2m on 13m boat. Fees as previously reports 30Euro first night with 20 on subsequent nights unchanged from last year. We asked about fuel and Niall took our drums, filled them and returned them to the boat. Other info on approach still appropriate. Lots of sea snail pots off the entrance and between Arklow and Wicklow Head cause need good lookout as they are often almost submerged in the tide. Not a good place to approach in the dark. Fees are cash only.
Long pontoon charges
Written by Mark Taylor | 14th Sep 2018
We were charged 30 Euros for the fist night and 20 for subsequent nights (June 2018). I think that this is a flat rate for any size of craft. Enjoyed the museum, but so quite that you will get a personal tour!

Visitors Pontoon
Written by Captain Guy | 22nd Aug 2016
I was there in June 2016. Most of the "visitors" pontoon was taken up by permanent residents - you could tell by the amount of weed accumulated on the wars - some hadn't moved in months!
