New Ross Port - Leisure

New Ross has much to offer boating enthusiasts travelling up the estuary from the Irish Sea or indeed via one of the three sister rivers – the Barrow, the Nore and the Suir.

The banks of the river close to the town centre are home to The Three Sisters Marina, the Dunbrody Famine Ship, New Ross Boat Club and New Ross Boat Yard. New Ross is also home to a number of river festivals and a cruising restaurant, The Galley.

The Three Sisters Marina has berths available for vessels up to 13.5m, close to the centre of the town and with CCTV coverage and a dedicated marina manager.

North of O’Hanrahan Bridge is New Ross Boat Club which has a dedicated slipway for launching boats. Its pontoon ensures easy access for other leisure craft including rowing boats, ribs, canoes and jetskis.

New Ross Boat Yard offers dry dock storage (75m x 15m) and boat storage as well as repairs and sales.

The Dunbrody Famine Ship and the Galley Cruising Restaurant are popular tourist attractions on the river at New Ross.
