Dublin Port Guidelines

Dublin Port Guidelines

There was a great turn out for the launch for the new guidelines for Leisure Craft Launch held at the Poolbeg Yacht and Boat Club recently.

Jimmy Murray and Ciaran Adamson, in conjuntion with Dublin Port Company, have just published a new instructional guidebook for leisure boats entering, leaving and travelling through Dublin Port safely.

Released in a document known as the DUBLIN PORT GUIDELINES FOR LEISURE CRAFT, it was launched by Deputy Lord Mayor Cllr. Clare Byrne and is aimed at all recreational users of the River Liffey and is a result of trying to make the complexity of navigation more legible and user friendly.

The guidelines are an essential source of information and creates a practical link between the commercial aspect of Dublin Port and the recreational boating community.
The aim of these Guidelines is to share local knowledge with every boat user so that more people can utilise and experience this great resource safely and capitalise on the potential of the River Liffey at the heart of the city.

Dublin Port Company Harbour Master David Dignam who also attended the launch said, “This booklet is a very informative publication for the leisure sector as it sets out the routes to be followed when entering or leaving Dublin port in a very clear and easily understood manner. The excellent maps, drawings and photographs show the routes for leisure craft when navigating on the River Liffey, thereby minimizing conflict with commercial shipping.”
