Depth Averaged Peak Spring Tidal Currents around Ireland

Depth Averaged Peak Spring Tidal Currents around Ireland image

Map of tidal pattern around Ireland. The tidal currents are generally low along the west and south coasts, are relatively strong in the St George’s and North Channels and are moderate along much of the east coast. The current strengths are considerably influenced by the local bathymetry. One part of the flood travels up the west coast and around the north of Ireland, whilst the other part floods north up the Irish Sea. The tidal streams meet in the area of St John’s Point. A consequence of the way the tides flow around Ireland is that there is a phase difference in the times of high and low water along different parts of the coast.
