There's something for everyone at Dun Laoghaire Harbour this Summer with Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council kicking off ten events with both the Irish Drifting Championships and the Red Bull Diving Series this month on the same weekend (May 11 and 12) in the Dun Laoghaire Harbour Campus.

It's followed by the Irish Beer Festival on May 18th located in the former marshalling area of the ferry terminal, referred to below as 'the compound'. 

The boating highlight, however, will be the biennial Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta where 500 boats compete for four days from July 9.

Of course, as well as the events below there also ten cruise liner visits to the harbour in 2019 and these are listed here.

The events scheduled for 2019:
