Moville’s (Port Code:IEMOV) location made it ideal for the maritime industry, and throughout the 19th century, large trading ships and transatlantic liners dropped anchor here. In the later years of the 1800s, Moville was a major port for embarkation for many travelers, including emigrants to Canada and America.
Situated on the western shore at the northern end of the Lough Foyle estuary, under the lee of the Inishowen Peninsula, Moville is a good anchorage in west through north to northeast winds, but it would be exposed to strong winds from the east and south. Although tidal streams are occasionally strong Moville affords a safe access in all reasonable conditions and at all states of the tide. The anchorage lies close to the ¾ of a mile wide Port of Londonderry Commercial Shipping Channel, which is well marked and supported by a lighthouse with a sectored light, enabling a night access.
