Bunbeg Harbour dates from the late 1830s when a local landowner, Lord George Hill, built it to encourage fishing in the area.
By the 1890’s it was a busy fishing port with the catch being predominantly herring and mackerel.
Today the fishing fleet is a lot smaller and you will find that the port is used by lots of pleasure craft as well. The port is the embarkation point for ferries to Tory Island and Gola Island.
The harbour is also one of the Wild Atlantic Way’s Discovery Points and is also home to Bunbeg Coast Guard.
