ABOUT CROMANE SEAFEST
PREPARE TO GET YOUR FEET WET FOR AN EPIC WEEKEND
MARITIME MASH-UP OF EVENTS & ACTIVITIES GALORE.
Cromane SeaFest is the product of a proud and committed community coming together to celebrate and share their Irish coastal heritage. We are deeply grateful to all volunteers and sponsors who made this event possible and exceptional for all to enjoy.
Experience a celebration of some of Ireland’s finest local seafood with maritime market tastings where you can meet the friendly Cromane fishermen who work hard to bring you the freshest and finest Cromane Mussels, Oysters and Salmon. Local Oyster Farmers will be the stars of the weekend when they battle it out for Cromane First Oyster Shucking Champion. Festive go-ers that are not seafood lovers, can still enjoy the fayre with an abundance of quality festive food trucks.
Experience watersports galore – surf and turf activities include water trampoline, canoeing, paddle boarding and kite flying. Youngsters will love diving into the wonderful world of seafaring. Watch them have a go at knot-tying lessons, learning all the tips and tricks from the experts or watch the Trawlers demo along the Bay. Try your hand at becoming marine mammal rescuer by assisting Bubbles, the dolphin, back into the sea or just hop aboard and enjoy a tour of Cromane Bay by Boat.
For those in the professional market Cromane SeaFest offers the perfect environment to mingle and source quality seafood. Stalls and vendors showcasing fishing merchandise and supplies means there's something for everyone.
