SeaFest is Ireland’s largest free maritime festival, and is fun, free and for all ages. Leave No Trace Educators will be on-hand with the Marine Explorer Education Programme to share tips and skills for protecting the Marine Environment.
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.
What can you experience at SeaFest?
With over 100 free events to choose from, you are spoiled for choice. Kids of all ages can discover the seabeds with virtual reality excursions into the deep; or can ‘mussel’ up and explore the equipment displays of the Defence Forces.
Get out on the water with a kayak, a sailboat, a currach or a dragon boat – the world really is your oyster! From docked vessel tours to currach seminars, delicious seafood demonstrations to intriguing marine workshops, you can dive right in at SeaFest 2019.
Where is it on?
