SeaFest, Ireland’s national maritime festival, takes place this year in Galway on Friday 30th of June through to Sunday 2nd of July.
Come along and discover all about our ocean – from how we explore, to shipwrecks and creatures of the deep. SeaFest is a fun, free summer festival for all ages and the programme of events includes a seafood fair, seafood cookery demonstrations with celebrity chefs and seafaring family fun. There will be tours of ocean going vessels, leisure craft and boats, exhibits on marine life and lots more fun and educational activities.
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. SeaFest also hosts the annual Our Ocean Wealth Conference and other business and research events.
