There’s a rock awash at HW just a cable and a half off to the ESE of the end of the Southern training wall; don’t be tempted to cut the corner.

No changes except that plans for a deep water harbour near Braymore Point seem well advanced and that it is a development by the Drogheda Port Company

I reviewed these notes in August 2021. I've added a warning for smaller boats mooring at Fiddlers Quay but that is because, with a 6.5 m boat the mixture of dolphins, tides, springs and fender boards always ended in tears!!
Update 2017 for new pier

A new yachting peir has been added on the North side of the harbour outside the dockyard. The text has been edited to indicate this.

Drogheda remains essentially a commercial port which they say is a busy port with no ideal berth for small craft.
Update 2015
