The weekend is a great opportunity for people to see exactly what Cork Harbour has to offer, with the second largest natural harbour in the world playing host to the annual Cobh to Blackrock sailing race, kayaking on the River Lee, crab fishing in Cobh and a free open day at the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI) in Ringaskiddy.
In Cork city, the Irish Naval Service CPV L.E.Ciara (P41) will be open to the public for free tours on the Saturday and Sunday.
To celebrate Cork Harbour Open Weekend, Spike Island is offering a family day out on the Island with live music, children's entertainers and an opportunity to walk on the recently completed Walking Trail around the perimeter of Fort Mitchell with stunning views of Cork Harbour.
