About SeaFest

SeaFest is an annual, broad based celebration focused on raising public awareness of marine matters and developments in the marine sector.

Each year, SeaFest endeavours to achieve this by bringing together a mix of business, policy, and public events under one umbrella at a coastal location. SeaFest also provides an opportunity for the host location to showcase its marine infrastructure and achievements, and provides commercial opportunities for the local economy by bringing together a critical mass of marine related events.
SeaFest seeks to further each objective of the HOOW Engaging with the Sea goal, namely:
  • Build on Ireland's maritime heritage and strengthen the national maritime identity
  • Increase awareness of the value, opportunities and social benefits
  • Engagement and participation by all
