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.

Car Parking

Car Parking is NOT available directly at the club during events but there is parking on the roads leading to the club and an overflow park will be made available. The roads are narrow and do not allow to park your car in front of the Club. 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.
