Greystones Harbour and Marina was developed under a public/private partnership between Sisk and Wicklow County Council. It has brought the community many benefits, including a new harbour and coastal protection works. When completed, it will also include many other facilities, including shops, restaurants and residential units.
Bye-laws for the operation of Greystones Harbour and Marina were adopted by Wicklow County Council and came into effect on 10 October 2014.
