Cork City Marina

Tides and tools

Situated on the south coast of Ireland, deep inside Cork’s harbour, Cork City Marina is a convenient pontoon berth that specifically welcomes leisure craft into the heart of the historic and nationally important city of Cork.

Being both inside the extensive natural harbour and several miles up-river the marina offers complete protection from all conditions. Safe access is assured in all reasonable conditions by Cork Harbour, one of the most easily approached, well-marked and safest natural harbours in the world.
Please note

The run-up to the City Quays is a trek of about fifteen miles from the entrance. The narrows at the upper end of the entrance can be unexpectedly rough when strong southerly conditions meet an ebb tide. Although well-lit throughout, newcomers may find the lower harbour’s vast array of marks a challenge to pick out from the lights of Cobh and a daylight entry is preferable for a first time visit.
