Car Parking

There is limited car parking adjacent to the Clubhouse. Car Parking is NOT available at the club during events but there is parking on the roads around the club. The road is narrow to the front of the Club and we would ask you to show consideration for our neighbours, the emergency services and Dublin Bus. Please follow the directions of our car and dinghy park attendants at all times.

Boat Parking

When you get to Sutton Dinghy Club there will be signs indicating where to park your boat. Please follow the directions of the car and dinghy park attendants. Please park your boat and accessories with consideration for other sailors. There are no vehicles or road trailers allowed in the boat park. You will have to off load in the car park or in the boat park. Then move the trailer as advised by instructions below.

Rib Launch

If you intend to bring a Rib we would request that you launch it in Howth Harbour at the public slip. Sutton Creek is tidal so we would recommend keeping your rib in Howth overnight. There is a limited number of mooring available in Sutton Creek but a Rib is moored at you own risk.

Trailer Parking (during events)

Depending on size of the event, some trailers will need to be removed from the Club area and parked at Sutton Park School which is located close to the club. You will be directed to Sutton Park school by the car park attendant. Again please park your trailer with consideration for others. This area will be secured through Saturday Night.
