Afloat adds Greenore Port is unique as it is the only privately owned port in Ireland and which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Doyle Shipping Group.

The port is also the Republic’s only deep-water port outside of Dublin Port and located on the east coast of Ireland and can cater for part-laden vessels of up to 60,000dwt.
