Belfast Harbour Marina Closes to Visitors Until Further Notice

In a rapid spread of harbour and marina closures in Northern Irish waters, the next to suffer is Belfast Harbour Marina which is closed to visitors until further notice.

The action has been taken in the light of current UK Government and Royal Yachting Association advice.

The 85-berth marina is in the heart of Belfast's Titanic Quarter and was installed to host the Belfast Tall Ships Festival in August 2009. Approximately 17 berths are dedicated to long term berthing and a further 17 are available for winter berthing from October until the end of March.

The marina is popular for overnighting while visiting in the City which is permissible only with Harbour Master or Marina Supervisor approval and generally not for more than five nights.

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.
