Foynes is Ireland’s deepest sheltered commercial harbour being adjacent to the world’s busiest shipping routes. With current capacity to handle over 10 million tonnes annually and with water depths of up to 32m, Foynes Port is uniquely positioned as an international cargo hub serving domestic, European and worldwide markets. The turnover value of current trade handled by the Port is €8.5 billion per annum, with associated economic impacts of €1.9 billion per annum and
supporting over 3,900 jobs. In order to fully realise the potential of its deep water advantage, future expansion and development of the Port is led by its Masterplan, Vision 2041. The future expansion of Foynes Port will be accommodated by up to 1200 hectares of land zoned for Port development. To further enhance the attractiveness of Foynes, permission was granted recently by An Bord Pleanála for the Foynes to Limerick duel-carriageway. The €450m project will connect the core Port of Foynes to the national motorway network and include a bypass of Adare.

In addition the reinstatement of the 40 km Limerick to Foynes rail line will further facilitate the sustainable expansion and development of the Port.
