Cork Harbour Festival – 2nd June to 10th June 2018

Cork Harbour Festival is a week-long celebration of Ireland’s unique maritime heritage, set in the second largest natural harbour in the world. Whether a visitor to the region or a native Corkonian, we invite you to experience the spectacular fleet of boats taking part in Ocean to City – An Rás Mór from the many vantage points along the harbour; taste from our seafood market; 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. The flagship event of the festival, Ocean to City – An Rás Mór is Ireland’s premier rowing spectacle. It attracts hundreds of participants from all over the world competing in everything from traditional wooden boats, currachs, gigs and longboats to Chinese dragon boats, kayaks and canoes. It is the largest event in Cork Harbour and a firm fixture on its cultural calendar.  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!  For further information please visit website www.corkharbourfestival.com .
