Dublin Port Riverfest Launched By Ship-Shape Model Mum Alison Canavan

Taking place over the June bank holiday weekend (Saturday 30th May – Monday, 1st June 2015) along Dublin's historic North Wall Quay, Dublin's unique maritime festival has a pirate theme for 2015, featuring seafaring events and quayside activities to create a carnival celebration for all the family to enjoy. Now in its third year, the Dublin Port Riverfest is aiming to attract 65,000 visitors over the three days and expects to contribute a €1million boost to the local economy.

With plenty to attract both swashbucklers and landlubbers, highlight attractions include seven majestic tall ships and schooners open for the public to explore, flyboarder demonstrations, street performers such as juggler Jack Flash and music from unique Irish/Nigerian band Tig Linn.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
