Dingle Harbour Facilities Set To Reopen By This Weekend

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) has confirmed that bathroom and shower facilities at Dingle’s harbour and marina will reopen by the coming weekend.

Marina users had expressed dismay that facilities at the fishery harbour had remained under lock and key, despite reports of no such restrictions on similar service blocks at other marinas frequented by cruisers along the coast.

In a statement to Afloat.ie, DAFM — which operates Ireland’s six Fishery Harbour Centres — said it was “not in a position to open the marina facilities in Dingle until such a time as appropriate cleaning services could be engaged to meet with the current safety guidelines” amid the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the department says the situation has now been resolved and the facilities will be open for the coming weekend.
