I was in Baltimore
and Crookhaven last summer. Both places were very pleasant but the shore facilities were rather basic.
In Baltimore, there wasn't much choice for victualling and the showers were in a pub on the quay (3€ each). The berth was 25€ including wifi
. In Crookhaven, there was no victualling and we walked 2km to have showers at a camping site. The mooring
buoy was 10€, no wifi
We were in Dingle too and saw Fungi. The marina is great, I don't remember the price
. Victualling was OK.
But the place I preferred was Castletownbere / Castletown Berehaven. It's a fishing
port but yachts are welcome. We berthed alongside fishing boats. The supermarket is close to the quay but it isn't easy to have a shower
. The fresh water
hose is sized for deep-sea trawlers. The laundry
in the main street is to be avoided! There is a marina in Lawrence Cove, on an island nearby, but we didn't go there.
Another pleasant place is Kilrush, in the mouth of the Shannon: good marina, victualling, Internet
in the public library.
There is no proper yacht chandler in any of these places: if you break something on the boat
, you are on your own.
