Sruthan Quay is located on the west side of Cashla Bay on the northern shore of Galway Bay about 22 miles west of Galway itself, on the west coast of Ireland. There is a good anchorage off the quay where some visitors moorings have been allocated, and there is also the opportunity to come alongside the quay although it dries at low water.

Sruthan Quay is located on the west side of Cashla Bay on the northern shore of Galway Bay about 22 miles west of Galway itself, on the west coast of Ireland. There is a good anchorage off the quay where some visitors moorings have been allocated, and there is also the opportunity to come alongside the quay although it dries at low water.

The anchorage affords good shelter and protection in most conditions though sometimes it can be subject to swell, and the access is straightforward in all reasonable weather and seas.The small quay is used by the local Galway hookers, a distinctive form of native Irish boat, and is today the single most important centre for this type of boat.
Please note

The anchorage can be rough in south or southeast gales. If coming alongside take care to avoid the little stone pillars built to support the outer bilge at each hookers berth.
