Saleen Pier

 

Saleen Pier

Saleen Pier was built in 1843/44, where the Ballyline river meets the estuarine waters of Ballylongford Creek. In the 19th century the harbour was a hub of activity and a major trading point between Kerry, Clare and Limerick. Grain was landed and shipped up the river to the local mill in Ballylongford, indicating the once mighty trade in grain in North Kerry. Today the pier is used for recreational activities, its days of commercial trade in grain long past.
