Greystones

Tides and tools
Overview





Greystones is situated on the east coast of Ireland about ten miles south of Dublin Bay and two miles south of Bray Head. It is a seaside resort and commuter town that offers a berth in a recently established marina plus the opportunity to anchor outside.

Berths in the marina offer complete protection. The harbour has straightforward access as there are no immediate off-lying dangers and it may be safely approached day or night and at any stage of the tide. The only difficulty is in the following seaway of a robust northeasterly where it would be best avoided by newcomers.
