Update Summer 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 22nd Jul 2019
These notes were reviewed in July 2019. As far as we can tell they are still charging 3.5 Euros per metre and there are no changes to their facilities. Read the notes on their website re out of hours arrivals and the notes below re entry codes to the pontoons.

We have added an extra enlarged image of the marina showing the berth numbers and the narrow berths J1 thro' J9.

Many thanks to Macboater below for the heads up on this

Just returned from a visit for a few days. Price still Euro 3.65 per metre per night. Diesel E1.15 per litre for less than 120 ltrs. If over 120 then E0.75, so if possible make sure you need 120+ when you get there.
The staff at the Marina and in the Club are very helpful. I was single manned and had help waiting to take ropes for berthing, without even asking.

The security card is needed to enter the outer gates of the Howth Club site and shower/changing facilities etc., within the site, as all the site and Marina are secure. However after 2130, when the gate to the pontoons is shut. it is also needed to access the pontoons, from the Clubhouse Bar and restaurant. So if like me you do not think you need it, when only going to the Yacht Club, make sure you have the key code for the gate to the Pontoons. The access code changes daily. I found the meals in the Yacht Club to be the best value, good quality and reasonably priced.

When requesting berth advise of beam as well as length, as a check of the marina plan will show that J2 to J9 are restricted width between berths. They moved me to F pier, without me asking whilst I was fuelling on arrival. Had the `house been full` berthing in my original allocated J would have been testing to say the least.

I reviewed these notes in April 2017. I see they've put up their prices. New charts will be uploaded
