Talbot’s Bay

Tides and tools
Overview





Lambay Island is a small island off the east coast of Ireland, about 2.5 square kilometres in size, situated two miles off the coast of North County Dublin and approximately six miles north of Howth. Talbot's Bay is located close south to the westernmost point of the island.

The secluded bay offers a tolerable anchorage in settled north and northeasterly conditions but is subject to an uncomfortable swell. Access is straightforward from the south to east and is completely unimpeded, all approaches from other directions require basic navigation. Daylight navigation is required as there are no markings.
Please note

In heavy conditions with a southerly component a better option is Saltpan Bay close to the northwestern corner of Lambay Island. In heavy northerly conditions, Howth harbour would be a preferable option.
