New pontoon erected

A TALKING point among visitors and locals alike is the newly erected pontoon system on the waters outside Portmagee village, situated between the pier and the Valentia bridge.

The system has been put in place for the benefit of tourist boats to Skellig Michael and also visiting yachts. It's a very convenient and safer option for boarding and landing purposes and also leaves the pier free to fishermen. The contractors were Keatings L.M. , Civil Engineering and Building Contractors of Co. Clare and the cost of the project was €265,000.
