Dublin Port Company have opened new permanent pontoons on the River Liffey at North Wall Quay.

All boat owners are invited to become a part of the Dublin Port Parade of Sail on the 27th and 28th of September, to mark the opening of the pontoons. The event has been organised by Sail Training Ireland, the Cruising Association of Ireland, Dublin Port Company and the Irish Sailing Association.

With overnight berthing on the new pontoons, boats will first gather in Dublin Bay before the Parade of Sail sets off up the Liffey. The event will also feature a reception buffet with music at the Boat Bar and Restaurant on board MV Cill Airne. Tickets for the buffet cost €20.

Communications Manager at Dublin Port, Charlie Murphy said: “The purpose of this event is to promote the River Liffey as a destination for the boating community. The river has so much potential as a recreational resource for Dublin City. We hope that this event will increase awareness among the boating community that the River is a destination that welcomes them”
