A quay with a substantial floating pontoon below the Islanders Rest Hotel and a landing slip a short distance to the east provide access for boaters during the summer season. This makes it easy for boaters to embark and disembark on the island. The pontoon is suitable for up to seven or eight boats and used by a mix of cruising boats, ribs and local fishing boats.
We've got a favour to ask
More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.
Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
