The Harbour was once of the world’s largest export of Beef and Dairy products, it was the final port of call for the Titanic, and it sheltered the American Navy in WW1. Today you can still see ships loading and offloading their cargo but you are as likely to witness locals out enjoying this natural amenity in theirs boats, kayaks and SUP’s.
