The pontoon mini marina situated in the picturesque village of Portmagee on the County Kerry coast will open its gates once more on July 1st. The sixteen berth pontoon which services the local Skelligs boats as well as visiting yachts and ribs from all across the country.

The pontoon has power and water services as well as toilet and recycling facilities adjacent to the entrance. It also has a lovely café & the Mooring Bar & Restaurant metres from the entrance and is the ideal place to pull in for a night or two.
