The three-day event will take place in the Docklands area, comprising the harbour, the commercial Docks, Claddagh and along the shore.

The festival will highlight Galway’s seafood and local beers, introduce people to the city’s iconic Galway Hooker sailing boats and our maritime history as well as lots of family fun and activities.
