 Waterford - Profile

Location

Founded in 853 by the Vikings, Waterford is Ireland’s oldest city. With its impressive medieval city walls, cobbled back streets and colourful waterfront, it is a delightful place to visit. It is also a busy commercial and fishing port.

It lies on the river Suir, and is a useful place to stock up with supplies. The passage up the river is well buoyed and with wonderful scenery making the trip worthwhile. The river is navigable for a further 9 miles beyond the town, but take note of the clearances of the 2 bridges and power cables.

Position 52° 14.30'N, 06° 57.73'W (river entrance)

Clearance

This is a Port of Entry.

See the Noonsite/Ireland/formalities page for full details for clearance.

Docking

Yachts can moor on the pontoons on the South side of the river, opposite the cathedral spire. This is the Waterford City marina.

Anchoring in the river is not recommended as the tidal streams past the town are strong, but there are several anchorages further down the estuary.

Dunmore East now has a dedicated pontoon inside the breakwater for yachts. The pontoon is a single 60m pontoon which can take 9 yachts in three rafts of 3. It has water and electricity. Installed in June 2016.
