Additional info:

Approach

From the East. Pass about 3 cables off Carnsore Point and make directly for St Patricks Bridge. In the season, it is maked with a port and starboard hand buoy. Go between them, as CD depth is down to 1.8m outside of the buoys. From these two buoys, head directly to the Fairway Buoy. Once at the Fairway Buoy you should be on the leading line (008 T) The leading markers are just to the east of the harbour, red and white pylons, Occ 4 Seconds White. There is also a directional light on the breakwater, keep in the white sector. Channel at low water can be as little as 1.9m.

Be careful, there is a cross tide over the leading transit, tide runs at about 2.5 kts, so keep a good eye on the transit.

The entrance to the harbour is between two breakwaters, which means a hard turn to port. If possible, have someone at the bow to watch for other vessels leaving. This is a busy fishing port, you won't win an argument with a fishing trawler.

Attractions

Not much, but a pretty village. There was a maritime musuem in an old light ship, but the light ship has been deemed unsafe.

Reviews for Kilmore Quay Fishing Port and Marina
Expensive and closed facilities, 2013-02-19
Captain: , Conwy, N. Wales (13850)

The navigation to get into the harbour was challenging but rewarding in a force 6-7 at night. The town is pretty, but pick your mooring because if you're near the fishing fleet at the entrance it can be noisy overnight. The reason for the low rating are the facilities - they were clean but very expensive to use, as you had to use Euro coins to operate the showers, which is on top of the mooring fees. Also, they were not open overnight - infuriating with our previous boat which only had a bucket as an emergency toilet. Basically, this completely spoiled an otherwise pleasant stay.

Very sheltered small marina, best to book ahead durung the summer. Not much in the village but a good spot to relax. As with all Irish marina's moorings are expensive compared to UK, but compared to somewhere like Kinsale, Kilmore Quay is a bargain
