Cork Harbour Open Day Date Announced

This year Cork Harbour Open Day will take place on Saturday 20th September 2014. The annual event promises once again to be an excellent weekend of fun for all the family around Cork Harbour, with many events free to the public.

The open day is a great opportunity for everyone to enjoy all that Cork Harbour has to offer, and this year will be no exception with the second largest natural harbour in the world playing host to many different activities.

While the programme of events is still coming together, organisers confirmed there will be a Coastguard Air Sea Rescue Demonstration; family fun on Spike Island, an Irish Naval vessel will be open to the public, free trips on the Port of Cork’s pilot boat, plus many more activities such as a raft race organised by Scouting Ireland.

Cork Harbour Open Day emerged from discussions between various stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of the Integrated Strategy for the Harbour in 2007. This has been taken forward by the Harbour Management Focus Group (HMFG) which meets quarterly to exchange information on Harbour issues. A HMFG working group comprising representatives from UCC, City and County Councils and the Port of Cork set about working together to engage users of the Harbour and to organise the Open Day.

If anyone is interested in getting involved with Cork Harbour Open Day or would like to organise an event, please contact harbourevents@corkharbour.ie to request an event application form.
