8 July 2020 - A decision was made by Mayo County Council not to deploy visitor moorings this summer. Due to Covid - 19 and the original restriction of the islands being closed to visitors till the 10th of August (which was only recently at a late date for the season), visitor moorings were not deployed.
The moorings are NOT gone forever, Mayo County Council still plan to deploy the moorings in 2021.
There are pontoons at Newport, Inishlyre, Westport Harbour, Kildavnet (Achill). Ballycroy/Innishbiggle.
