Cork Harbour Festival 2018
Jun 2 @ 12:00 pm – Jun 10 @ 6:00 pm

Cork Harbour Festival 2018
Saturday 2 June – Sunday 10 June 2018

Cork Harbour Festival 2018 is the largest annual event in Cork Harbour offering a nine-day celebration of Cork’s maritime culture over the first week of June.  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 fourth year, the festival celebrates Cork Harbour as a natural and cultural resource, with the communities and their stories at the heart of it.

Our sincere thanks go to Cork City Council, Cork County Council, Port of Cork and Fáilte Ireland without whose financial backing this festival would not be possible.

Cork Harbour Festival is coordinated by Meitheal Mara – Community Boatyard Cork.

Selected as one of the Top 36 Global Festivals in 2017 by FlightNetwork.com!

”The Festival: Taking place in the second largest natural harbor in the world, the Cork Harbour Festival is an active, exhilarating display of Ireland’s own maritime roots. Here, families gather to partake in everything from urban kayaking and mobile saunas, to yacht sailing along the crystalline waters of Cork Harbour. Oh, and did we mention seaweed foraging? Yes, that’s a thing.

What To Expect: Flip-flop wearers beware: the Cork Harbour Festival offers a wide range of outdoor activities, and you’ll want to dress appropriately. Walking enthusiasts can join any of the free guided walking tours, spooky ghost tours, or day excursions over to nearby Spike Island. Spectators, on the other hand, might find themselves drawn to the true Cork spectacle — “The Rebel Plunge” — a 3.8km downstream swim en route to Blackrock Village.”
