Overview





Great Island is situated on the south coast of Ireland within Cork’s extensive natural harbour, a mile eastward of Cobh. It offers a remote anchorage in beautiful natural surroundings.

Being on the south side of the island, the anchorage offers good protection from all northerly-quadrant winds. As part of the lower harbour, it will never be subject to any big seaway from other quadrants, but in these conditions, Cork Harbour offers a choice of more suitable locations within a short distance. 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.
