Ardglass marina is situated midway between Carlingford and Bangor on the County Down coast and is one of the safest small harbours on the east coast of Ireland thanks to its two breakwaters and deep water. It has proved to be a popular destination for yachtsmen over the last two decades. The marina has approximately 50 berths and is used by both local boats and visiting yachts.
The Marina is just south of the entrance to Strangford Lough, where yachts are able to berth if they need to wait for a favourable tide to get into the Lough. It is also used as a popular stopover point for yachts traveling up or down the Irish Sea coast and has proved to be a very pleasant place to spend a few days. The Marina is a chain fixed pontoon type and is open 24 hours a day all year round. It provides good shelter for boats and is separated from the fishing harbour to the south by an outcrop of rock.
It is an ideal marina for medium size boats. The visitors pontoon can accommodate vessels up to 20mts in length on a short stay basis. Permanent berths are available on an annual basis for boats under 12mts. Winter storage is also available. Maximum draught is 2.50 m. The basic needs of our visitors will be well met, with water and electricity available on the pontoons, gas and petrol is available from the local Spar filling station, diesel can be purchased from the local companies that also supply the large fishing fleet, and boat repairs can also be arranged by contacting the marina office. Recently refurbished shower and toilet facilities now include disabled facilities and visitors also have use of the Marina’s kitchen and laundry facilities.
