Kilrush Marina. Yacht and boat berths, Co. Clare.

Kilrush Marina. Yacht and boat berths, Co. Clare.

Kilrush Marina and boatyard is strategically placed for exploring the unspoilt west coast of Ireland, including Galway Bay, Dingle, west Cork and Kerry. It also provides a gateway to over 150 miles of cruising on Lough Derg, the River Shannon and the Irish canal system. Accessed via lock gates, the marina lies at one end of the main street in Kilrush, the marina centre provides all the facilities for the visiting sailor. Kilrush is a vibrant market town with a long maritime history. A 15 minute ferry ride from the marina takes you to Scattery Island, once a 6th Century monastic settlement but now only inhabited by wildlife. The Shannon Estuary is reputed for being the country's first marine Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and is home to Ireland's only known resident group of bottlenose dolphins.

    I am contemplating getting a boat which needs serious overhaul.
    It is a bilge keeled 30 footer.
    Can you give me an idea of costs involved to use your boatyard to repair it in and then (hopefully) to berth it in the marina?
    Am am at this stage only doing costing to see if I can afford to take on this project!

    We are taking our Beneteau Oceanis 50 round Ireland in may/june this year. Is it possible to book a marina bearth for a week or so subject to availability please. She is LAO 15.09 and draft 2.05
