Use of Drones at Dublin Port

While we love to see aerial views of the Port & Bay area, please note that Dublin Port is a busy commercial port with potentially hazardous sites ashore and a wide variety of shipping from small recreational craft through to commercial passenger, oil cargo, and freight vessels.


Unregulated and careless drone use carries many potential hazards ranging from; risk of injury to port staff, members of the public, passengers & crew through to collision with vessels, oil jetties, cargo berths and quays.


Consequently, the routine use of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles of any type is prohibited within port limits.
