The Port of Ibben is the main city on Ib and is the largest city of Ibben. It is located on the southern coast of Ib.[1]


The grey, gloomy Port of Ibben has cobbled alleys, steep hills, and teeming docks and shipyards. The city is lit by whale-oil lamps suspended on iron chains. Its main structure is the ruins of the God-King's castle. Beyond the Port of Ibben, foreigners are only allowed with an Ibbenese host.[2]


The Port of Ibben has ruled over Ib and the lesser isles since the Dawn Age.[2]

The ironborn raiders of the Iron Islands have sailed as far as the Port of Ibben.[3]
