SeaFest showcases Ireland’s abundant maritime resources – raising awareness of the value and opportunities provided by the sea and also celebrates our proud maritime heritage.
SeaFest also incorporates a series of marine-related business and research events, the annual Our Ocean Wealth Summit, as well as a maritime festival.
A unique aspect of SeaFest is the number of local, state and national agencies and organisations that come together to plan this event.
What can you experience at SeaFest?
A weekend of fun, family friendly events lay in wait for you at SeaFest. Discover all about our oceans, including the creatures that live beneath, how we explore our seas, the ships that transport us and the fascinating tales from the deep.
Take part in interactive activities, watch demonstrations and go onboard a ship. The festival covers all things marine – from seafood cookery to science, cultural history to deep sea exploration and much more!
SeaFest has quickly become one of the most popular summer festivals in Ireland, attracting more than 100,000 visitors in 2017 and 2018.
All events and activities are free, however, a small number of events may require pre-booking.
