I reviewed these notes in October 2022. No major changes and Poolbeg has kept its price for three years. If anyone has tried to get to the pontoon in the middle of Dublin we would be interested to hear of their experience.

I reviewed these notes in August 2021. There have been major improvements to the Poolbeg Marina Clubhouse. I've a feeling that access to the pontoon in the middle of the City through the swing bridges may be difficult
Update Summer 2019

These notes were reviewed in July 2019. The price has been held for another year, the visitors pontoon in the city centre is still inaccessible to masted vessels, and we've uploaded new charts

Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 22nd Apr 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2015. The prices at the Poolbeg Marina remain the same for the 2015 season
Update November 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 28th Nov 2013
These notes were updated on the 28th November 2013. Since we first uploaded our notes on this harbour there has been a major change here. They've built a bridge which to all intents and purposes has ruled out the pontoon in the centre of the city as an option for visiting yachts. In the meantime there has been major investment at the Poolbeg Marina and it has become the destination of choice for sailors visiting Dublin. Our notes have been altered to reflect these changes.
