Ringmoylan Pier

Ringmoylan Pier is situated on the Shannon Estuary, a few kilometers north of the village of Pallaskenry in Co. Limerick. This concrete structure was built in the 1830s, and was used to discharge turf from boats originating across the estuary in Co. Clare. Local people escaping poverty and hunger were taken from here in small skiffs to ships waiting in the estuary, bound for the U.S.A and Canada. On the other side of the estuary you can see Shannon Airport, Cratloe Village and Bunratty Castle.

Further Information:

Caution:  Ringmoylan Pier is subject to deep waters during high tide. The off-road terrain is also rough and slippery in some places and boggy and wet in others.
