The Tall Ships that have been anchored in Dublin Bay and Dun Laoghaire since Thursday have arrived in Dublin City Centre this evening for the start of the Tall Ships Regatta. Read more about the event here.
The Sail Training International regatta is hosted by Dublin City Council with support from Dublin Port Company.
This two-leg event sees a fleet of 17 ships sail from Liverpool to Dublin, and then to Bordeaux in an exciting passage race through the Irish Sea, Celtic Sea and Bay of Biscay.
The ships will be berthed in Grand Canal Dock and on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay over the bank holiday weekend, and maritime enthusiasts and members of the public are welcome to visit some of the ships on Saturday and Sunday.
