Update November 2022
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 25th Nov 2022
I reviewed these notes in October 2022 and am informed that there is a pontoon on one of the landing stages. That pontoon is for short stops for pick-up etc. The other two may be used for overnight stops as long as you can take the ground

Landing stages in Bray
Written by Donal Gleeson | 9th Jun 2013
There are landing stages on the north pier where boats can tie up. Approach close to the north pier after half tide.
The Sailing Club uses channel 11. There is usually moorings available as boats will be away cruising. Contact the sailing club to arrange. Visit www.braysailingclub.ie for contact details. The harbour is only recommended for lift keel and bilge keel boats. Fin keel boats may lie against the harbour wall or stands but will have limites time for entering and exit the harbour.
The harbour stores can fill the majority of gas bottles.
The DART station is nearby for easy access to Dublin.

When proceeding north to Dublin keep the tower on Killiney head in line with Bray Head to avoid the rocks near Killiney beach. When going south give Bray Head a good distance off and at the other side of Bray Head stay out to avoid Cable Rock.
