Overview





Little Island is located on the southeast coast of Ireland thirteen miles within Waterford Harbour. Encircled by the Suir the small island offers an excellent anchorage in an idyllic rural setting but still close to the city of Waterford.

Little Island is located on the southeast coast of Ireland thirteen miles within Waterford Harbour. Encircled by the Suir the small island offers an excellent anchorage in an idyllic rural setting but still close to the city of Waterford.

Little Island is a completely protected anchorage, and if one had to endure an extreme weather event this should be one of the area's first choices. The wide, unhindered and well-marked Waterford Harbour estuary provides straightforward access, night or day and at any stage of the tide. The helm should prepare for both strong and deflecting currents as the Suir diverges and converges around Little Island.
Please note

Tidal streams are a prime consideration within Waterford Harbour; a strong adverse current will make for slow progress, conversely, a favourable passage current will make the estuary quickly traversable.
