Ignore my comments about South Coast angling contractors. The Council have sorted out a pontoon and the details are in the text.

These notes were reviewed in July 2019. Details for South Coast Charter Angling (who had a pontoon) have become a bit confused; the number they have advertised on the internet is a mobile and no longer works. We are investigating. New Charts

I reviewed these notes in April 2017. New charts are uploaded. I have mentioned the undercut experienced by Captain Guy below.

Spoke to the HM - he advised the Commercial Quay was available as no commercial traffic expected. There at Springs so there was about 3.5 metres of drop. Shocked to see the Commercial Quay is undercut after about 2 metres - had sit up through the night guarding against the rising tide catching us out.
Update 2015

Youghal is a Jewel and not to be missed.

Diesel in larger quantities (probably greater than 500 ltr) available on the quay by tanker from o neill 132 north main street, and are obviously well use to dealing with afloat customers as they arrived exactly to the minute..
