Bangor Marina, built in 1989, is one of the largest 5 gold anchor accredited marina developments on the island of Ireland and is the largest in Northern Ireland, attracting a considerable number of vessels.

Some of its infrastructure is critical to safe and effective operations and cannot be moved, however a level of redesign will enable us to increase the number of seafaring visitors to Bangor and to open up the space, making it easier for people to enjoy the sea views.

The redesign will include additional public access with dropped boardwalks, seating and viewing areas and opportunities for food and beverage offerings to be integrated into the Marina.

Bangor Marina & Harbour Berth Holders and Users Survey

Ards and North Down Borough Council has appointed Marina Projects Ltd as the commercial operator procurement specialist for Bangor Marina and Harbour.  In order to fully understand how the marina and harbour are used and to understand any issues, the MPL team met and addressed a number of berth holders and contractors in Aurora Aquatic & Leisure Complex on Tuesday 9 May 2023. 

Following the meeting, MPL requested berth holders, marina and harbour users and contractors complete a survey to gain a more detailed understanding of the operation. The survey closed on 31 May 2023. The results will be collated and reviewed by MPL and Ards and North Down Borough Council.
