It took many years of careful planning and work to create our marina. We chose the perfect spot to carve a small inlet into our farmland, then drove piles deep into the riverbed before finally floating a berthing pontoon into position.
When mooring a valuable cruiser you have to be sure the berth is of the highest standard. So we developed Killynick Marina to the same exacting specification as used by Waterways Ireland.
You have access to your boat via a galvanised walkway with safety handrails. This leads out to a floating jetty constructed of anti-slip GRC* decking where lifebuoys are installed; and automatic lighting helps ensure your safety when using the jetty at night.
The jetty is a full forty-five metres in length and for comfort and convenience mains water and electricity power points are available for all of our clients. As you would expect, regular checks are performed to ensure that all features are maintained in good working order, as safety and reliability are of the utmost importance.
The walkway is reached by way of a shore path, specially created in gravel and timber, which leads down from the main slipway and parking area. The slipway itself is set well in off the main river flow and is very large. It can easily cope with vessels of up to 30 tonnes (15m long and 5m wide). And when you launch your cruiser at the start of the season, you can simply leave your trailer closeby in our secure parking area, for the duration of your stay with us.
