Dublin Port Company has just launched an ambitious and exciting development plan for the port through to 2040.
Tourism is important business for the port with over 1.7 million ferry and cruise passengers passing through each year.
The Masterplan is founded on 3 principles:
- Maximising the use of existing lands
- Reintegrating the port with the city
- Developing the port to the highest environmental standards
Another major initiative is the construction of a new cruise ship facility adjacent to the East Link Bridge and O2 theatre. Its proximity to the LUAS line brings the city within easy reach of the high spending cruise passengers. The new cruise facility is expected to be in place by 2015.
