    At approx MM613 is Kilkenny Creek with Kilkenny Creek Marina. Kilkenny has a reputation for being a particularly “quaint” stop in rural outback Georgia.

    Rates have increased and are $1.50/ft now. They add a 3% chg if you use credit card. Bathroom/shower is in rough shape and no laundry or boater facilities. Small store with some food and drinks. Nice family that runs the place.

    Especially nice were the people at the Kilkenny marina and the restaurant there was very welcoming. Made the sunset bridge for the 3 :00 opening and then it shut down for the day. Keep up the good work. Next time we will take the time to really enjoy the trip.

    Jan 30, 2010 If you want to get some insight as to what it may have been like cruising the ICW 40 years ago, plan to stop here. Very straight forward going up Kilkenny Creek. Side tie on port or starbgoard depending on tidal flow. Restaurant is now open. Call ahead to be sure. Restrooms open only during office hours (7am to 7pm). Really nice folks and real country. There is one long floating dock. Very dangerous on a frosty morn’. We left Harbour Town on Hilton Head – stopped at Kilkenny – and proceeded to Brunwick Landing. A perfect stopping point. Capt Dave

    Naturally, we got there on Monday so couldn’t try the new resturant. This is our fifth stop in the last three years and we plan on stopping there again. Robert and Bob are super and do their best to please. The peace and quiet is wonderful. Good diesel prices, also.

    Subject: Marker 107 Restaurant at Kilkenny
    Cruising News: Claiborne, a new restaurant opened at Kilkenny in late July, Marker 107. I have eaten there three times, I live new by and boat the waters often. It is a great place, all the meals have been great. You can tie up for free to dine, if you overnight you have to pay the Kilkenny Marina. The view from the open veranda dining area is great.

    Claiborne, I’ve been up and down the ICW several times and I *still* keep Killkenny on my “must stop” list. It’s a pleasure to talk to the owners and a joy to sleep in absolute peace and quiet. Plus the sky is loaded with stars if you’re lucky enough to pick a cloudless night. I really like to watch them launch those small boats with their ingenious launch rig. It’s right up there with Leland Oil Company as a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of most other stops. Both of these places are examples of what I imagine the ICW was like many years ago. Another excellent one is the B&B Seafood Company. I believe that is what it’s called.

    We stayed at Kilkenny Marina at the end of June this year. It was strategically located between St. Simons and Savannah. The entrance channel had plenty of depth all the way up the creek, and the dockmaster monitored the VHF and gave us docking instructions before we got there. This is a barebones operation – no restaurant or rest rooms to speak of, just dockside electricity and water,but I was impressed with the friendliness of the people. It was eerily quiet all night, and we saw a lot of stars. A welcome change from the touristy towns of Fernandina and Golden Isles.

    We took a look a couple of years ago at Kilkenny and decided to avoid it. It was just a shack and a dock with some scary looking characters hanging around. A friend of mine dropped by there this year and said the place has changed a lot, with a restaurant added. See if you get more info on this place because it is well located and may have gone through a transformation.
    Best regards,

    The Deliverance music is only in your head… if you suppress it, you will be fine. Docks are crappy, but hey, its supposed to be an adventure, right! I heard the new restaurant folded again. Not sure of current status

    Stayed at Kilkenny Creek Marina in fall. Very bad docks. Bugs. Dockmaster nice man. Restaurant was a find. Very good meal. Anchored in Kilkenny Creek in the spring just off ICW before marina. Good holding (mud) and swing room.

    Your question number sixteen about Kilkenny asked about the restaurant. The restaurant is closed. Apparently, the chef didn’t work out. Also, beware of the 15 feet vertical lift opening used to pull small craft onto trailers. There is no warning or gate and the unsuspecting might take a plunge into the river especially at night.
    We thought we heard some fiddle music in the background but couldn’t confirm. Overall a unique experience!
