Fenit Marina On An Angry Evenning

Fenit is the Kerry port where Saint Brendan the navigator was born and from here he is said to have set sail for America over 1400 years ago. Fenit is now a major port, busy with fishing boats, dinghy’s and cargo ships. If you want to see a port in full swing, you will enjoy Fenit.

The Jenny Johnston was moored here for a good few months before setting sail for America and if you enjoy oysters you must take a trip to Fenit.

On Fenit island, north-west of the village, are the crumbling remains of Fenit Castle, built around 1800 to guard the entrance to barrow harbour which once had a busy trade with Spain and the Low Countries.

Fenit Harbour Marina is located on Tralee Bay has space for 110 berths for boats from 6 meters – 25 meters.

The marina has solid concrete decking which gives fantastic stability in all weathers. Smart card access and video surveillance for extra security and a wheelchair access to all yachts and sea angling boats.

Onshore facilities include: showers, toilets, laundry room, cranes, sailing club and excellent bars and restaurants.

If you want to enjoy an enjoyable friendly, some times lively drink, stroll down to the West End, mention you know me and settle down for the night.

Do you know who you are? Does your great, great grandfather come from Fenit or nearby?
