Paddy's Point

The new Port of Cork redevelopment at Ringaskiddy will consist of a new container terminal and multi-purpose berth which will envelop the existing pier and slipway. To ensure public safety, segregation of terminal traffic and public users must be achieved. In order to do this, a new public pier and slipway will be constructed at Paddy’s Point to the east of the current pier and slipway, with a 25 metre pontoon orientated to be out of the tide, allowing greater access for smaller craft. While the current pier and slipway is tidally restricted, the new pontoon and slipway will be accessible at all stages of the tide. These new facilities will be complimented with a landscaped area encompassing new pedestrian walking routes, car parking and boat storage. There will be short-term trailer parking available, allowing users to safely launch boats. This new purpose built recreation area will provide a much improved, fully lit and landscaped space which will be easily accessed via a public footpath from Ringaskiddy Village. Paddy’s Point will provide marine leisure users, families and local residents with access to the water and a much needed general recreation area. Construction is due to commence at Paddy’s Point in Q4 2016.
