Architect sought for Doolin Pier masterplan

  • Comment

Clare County Council is hunting an architect to masterplan the area surrounding Doolin Pier

The appointed team will develop plans for new visitor facilities – including a ticket booth, café, harbour office, waiting room and toilets – to replace existing temporary structures at the pier which connects the Ireland to the Aran Islands.

A masterplan to improve parking and traffic management within the wider coastal village will also be required.

Around 90,000 passengers use the pier – which is currently undergoing a £4.5 million regeneration – every year.

Clare County Council chief executive Tom Coughlan said: ‘Doolin Pier is a gateway to the Aran Islands and is a major economic location in the North Clare area. The investment in the new pier will increase visitor numbers to the North Clare area and it is important therefore, that the necessary services are in place to accommodate this growth.’

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on 13 February.
