Drake’s Pool

Tides and tools
Overview





Drake’s Pool is situated on the south coast of Ireland, within Cork’s extensive natural harbour and two miles up the Owenboy River. It offers a river anchorage in a secluded location with a town just within walking range.

Approached through Cork's Lower Harbour and well up-river, Drake’s Pool 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 but daylight is required to pass through the numerous moorings that commence at Crosshaven.
