Cork Harbour Festival is the largest annual event in Cork Harbour offering a nine day celebration of Cork’s maritime culture, from 3rd – 11th June 2017. Kicking off on the June Bank Holiday weekend the festival features 60 events taking place in Cork City as well as in 15 harbour towns and villages.
There are a variety of events to dive into, from water activities to guided walks, open days to open sails, seafood market to seaweed foraging and so much more.
Whether a visitor to the region or a native Corkonian, come and experience the spectacular fleet of boats taking part in Ocean to City – An Rás Mór from the many vantage points along the harbour.
So why not go crab fishing in Cobh; explore our many heritage sites; brave a guided ghostly trail; sail in the harbour or come for a kayak and discover Cork City from a different perspective.
Now in its third year, the festival celebrates Cork Harbour as a natural and cultural resource, with the communities and their stories at the heart of it.
There are plenty of free family events happening throughout the festival. So, come and join us for a magical maritime week!
