They came, they took part and they loved it! Here are just a few visitor reviews of SeaFest:

“Fantastic festival. Had a wonderful time. Enjoyed touring the ships and learned a lot about them. All the different stalls, the demonstrations and watching the boat building while listening to Irish musicians and a surprise Irish dancer was very unique and enjoyable. Looking forward to next year already.”

“Second year attending and it was as enjoyable as last year. Great family day out. We were on board the Celtic Explorer, fascinating, really friendly and informative crew. The fly boarders were simply amazing. I think small girl is already compiling her list for Santa! Thank you all so much for a wonderful time.”

“Thank you SeaFest for the best family weekend we’ve had in Galway. You need to take a bow, from enjoying Celtic Explorer and the L.E. Ciara to Flyboarders and the Irish Defence Forces to Pirates on the docks and making kites, it was amazing. The absolute highlight was meeting the Claddagh Boatmen and getting out with Galway Bay Boat Tours … The best way to see Galway. Thank you so much, if we could give you more than a 5 we would!!”

“Fortunate to visit Galway during SeaFest and had the opportunity to see the famous Galway Hooker boats in the bay, traditional boats in Galway. Great atmosphere in the quays during SeaFest with lots of accessible boats and of course, plenty to eat and drink.”
