The second largest of the three marinas at Crosshaven, this one is associated with the boatyard that built many of Ireland's best known cruising and racing yachts over the years, thanks to its close proximity to the Royal Cork Yacht Club. The river is safe and sheltered, yet close to the entrance to Cork Harbour, making it an ideal stopover on a cruise of Ireland's beautiful southwest coast. In July of even-numbered years, yachts from all over Europe converge here to race in Cork Week. Less than ten kilometres away is a ferry port serving France. Crosshaven now supports many top quality restaurants.
