Description
Inland harbour with coursed dressed limestone quay walls, c. 1810, with channel to west to Shannon River. Saw mill buildings and house, originally associated with the harbour, no longer in use.

Appraisal

Originally serving a wharf and saw mills, this harbour is now in use for small private vessels. The quality of the construction of the harbour walls has ensured their survival in very good condition.
