Small tidal stream inaccuracies can develop when advancing beyond HW Dover +6. Because of this we only enable today's tidal stream chartlets to advance 24 hours. Future tidal planning is best accomplished by using Dún Laoghaire Harbour's future tides predictor below.
The above image represents the current tidal streams offshore of this haven. Streams attaining three knots and above are highlighted by red arrows . All times are in local time with red text indicating springs, blue indicating neaps and gray between tidal events. Click [+] to advance the estimate by an hour and click [-] to step back. Future tidal planning is best accomplished by using Dún Laoghaire Harbour's future tides predictor below.

Arrows represent the direction of tidal streams with lighter or shorter arrows indicating weaker streams. Stronger streams are indicated by heavier or longer arrows, and as mentioned above, red arrows flagging rates of 3 knots and above. Numerals represent [mean neap, mean spring] rates in tenths of a knot. For example the numbers 12,23 would indicate a mean neap of 1.2 knots and a mean spring of 2.3 knots.

Tides in the Irish Sea near Dublin broadly follow the main Irish Sea streams which are:
Tide runs south in the entire southern Irish Sea from HW Dover for six hours
Tide runs north in the entire southern Irish Sea from LW Dover for six hours
The tide turns about one hour earlier at Dalkey Sound. So, southbound vessels wishing to make use of the south going ebb down the Irish Sea, local boats leave Dun Laoghaire at HW Dover -1:30 and can then expect almost 7 hours of fair tide which will take them to Arklow and beyond.
This also means a fair tide passing Bray Head, Wicklow Head and Mizen Head which all have stronger tidal streams.
