We built the small craft harbour in the prominent Irish fishing port of Killybegs in a number of stages between 2015 and 2017, helping to reverse recent decline through diversification.
The small marina was the first stage of the project for the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine (DAFM), creating berthing for 63 boats up to 15m in length from our continuous concrete pontoons.
|Client||Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine|
|Date||Installed 2015 - 2017|
|Where||Killybegs, County Donegal, Ireland|
As the development evolved over a number of years, we worked closely with DAFM to understand the end vision. We adapted designs to make sure that all aspects of the future expansion were possible to achieve, such as the wave attenuating breakwater, protecting the marina.
Killybegs, on the North West Coast of Ireland, is now a haven for the sailing community as well as a bustling fishing port, providing a gateway to explore this beautiful region.
The new facilities mean the Killybeg fishermen are still able to thrive while the local population, with all its sea-going knowledge, receives a boost from the increased tourism from visiting leisure vessels.
