COVID-19 Update 11th September 2020

Customers may access the Harbour site while adhering to strict social distancing rules.

Whilst on site, Harbour customers are reminded to maintain a 2 meter distance from other Harbour users, and use the hand sanitizers provided, when entering your designated storage shed.  From 10 August it is mandatory in Northern Ireland to wear face coverings in particular circumstances – short periods in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not possible.

Toilets have been reopened for use; please wash hands regularly for 20 seconds or more and clean down any surfaces before leaving toilets.

**Please Note:  All customers must visit the Harbour Office during working hours to have their key fob reinstated on the system.   

It is important to recognise that while some restrictions are being relaxed, we remain in a state of national emergency and social distancing measures must be adhered to by all customers visiting the Harbour site.


  • If you are feeling unwell or show any Covid-19 symptoms, do not come to the Harbour.
  • If any member of your household has Covid-19 symptoms, then you should self quarantine for 14 days. You should not come to the Harbour.
  • If you exhibit symptoms of Covid-19 within 3 days of a visit to the Marina premises, then please inform us so we can then take the appropriate precautions.

Please take the time to read through our Notice To Marinerswhich outlines safe practices in place at the Harbour.
