Bunagee Pier, Culdaff, Co Donegal, North West Ireland
Bunagee has recently seen the development of a new breakwater and pontoons to accommodate up to 15 vessels at Bunagee Pier. Located off Culdaff Bay, Bunagee is sheltered from south and west, and provides an excellent stop off point on your sailing adventure around Malin Head.
Culdaff Bay is situated on the north coast of Ireland about midway between Malin Head and Inishowen Head on the Inishowen Peninsula. The bay offers one of the best anchorages along this coast with the new pontoons at Bunnagee Pier.
Culdaff is a good anchorage that affords shelter and protection from winds from south-southeast through south to north-northwest. Strong external tidal streams that pass outside, keep down the swell inside the bay. The wide bay that is free from outlying dangers offers straightforward access at all states of the tide.
Bunagee Pier is a convenient landing and other facilities are at Culdaff village, 1 km. The berth closest to the main pier has more than 2 meters at low water.
Facilities include: Visitor Moorings, Anchorage, Fresh Water, Fuel by can, Provisions, Store, Bar, Restaurant, Slipway.
