Harbour Licensing

**Please note, online licensing is currently unavailable: we apologise for any inconvenience. We hope to have this rectified as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.**

 

A licence to berth lasts for 12 months from the start of the season, irrespective of how long the vessel is kept in the water.  The duration the vessel is permitted to be kept in the water will depend on the type of vessel, the type of mooring and the insurance cover in place.  Fees are non-refundable once payment has been made (unless application is unsuccessful). Please contact us on 028 91 882377 to discuss any queries before submitting your application.
