Wicklow Port is a seaside tidal port at the mouth of the Leitrim River approximately 35 miles south of Dublin. There are two piers, (East & West) which protect the entrance to the port. Entry to the port is 365 days per year day and night.
Cargo operations are carried out at the packet pier and river berths, (North & South Quays) which are well protected from all weather elements.
Wicklow Port specialises in handling bundled timber, paper, lead, plasterboard, steel and dry bulk cargoes, principally coal. Other general and heavy lift cargoes can be accommodated.
Wicklow Port Company took over the functions from Wicklow Harbour Commissioners in May 2002. Plans were put in place to extend the Packet Pier area to take unitised cargoes. With the planned go-ahead of the new Port Access Road in 2005 this will greatly enhance the development of the commercial planning of the port. The co-operation of the stevedores ensures a very quick turn-around of all vessels using the port.
