Fethard Dock

Described as Ireland’s smallest port, the diminutive Fethard Quay is one of the oldest harbours on Ireland’s east coast that’s still mostly in its original form. Built in 1741, the harbour is just 30 meters wide and 60 meters in length, consisting of a quay and two piers. It was never intended as a harbour for fishing boats but was purpose-built to shelter just one vessel - the King’s Barge – a revenue cruiser responsible for policing smuggling activities.
