FESTIVAL OF THE SEA 2016

 

 Below, you'll find details for the 2016 FESTIVAL OF THE SEA. This is as accurate as we can give at this time (early June - the programme may still be subject to change).


The 2016 Festival takes place between the dates of

Friday 29th July  &  Tuesday 9th August

Called "Festival of the Sea" because the Aughrus Peninsula is as surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean as it could be, unless it were an actual island!  A great mix of events suitable for all tastes and ages.
