Kerry County Council has upgraded a number of visitor moorings buoys around the Kerry coast.

Visitor mooring buoys provide an overnight berthing facility for the visiting yachts and boats.

Kerry County Council has responsibility for the management of the Kerry Coastal Area Visitor Moorings.

The council established the mooring buoys in recognition of increased coastal tourism and says it recognises the important role marine tourism plays in the county’s coastal communities and the potential for sustainable growth in this sector.

In association with the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, under the Marine Leisure & Marine Tourism strand of the Fishery Harbours and Coastal Infrastructure Development Programme 2016, Kerry County Council has recently up-graded and replaced the facilities in the following locations in the county:

Ventry Harbour – 3 moorings

Kells Bay – 4 moorings

Derrynane Harbour – 3 moorings

Sneem / Oyster Bed – 4 moorings
