Seafest 2019 Cork

SeaFest is Ireland’s largest free maritime festival, and is fun, free and for all ages. We are proud to be part of The Explorers Education team for the event. 

Get onboard and head to the Port of Cork, Cork City from Friday, 7th June to Sunday, 9th June. SeaFest will run each day from 10am to 6pm. 

SeaFest is a key part of Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth: An Integrated Marine Plan for Ireland (HOOW) and its goal of increasing participation and engagement with the sea.

Oceans flow over nearly three-quarters of our planet, and hold 97% of the planet’s water. They produce more than half of the oxygen in the atmosphere, and absorb the most carbon from it.

No matter how far from the shore that you live, oceans still affect your life and the lives of your families and friends, classmates and colleagues. For more information on the plan and on our oceans in general, visit the Our Ocean Wealth website

SeaFest is presented by Cork City Council and the Marine Coordination Group and is co-funded by the Government of Ireland and the European Union under Ireland’s European Maritime & Fisheries Fund Operational Programme for the seafood sector.
