Cork Harbour Open Day 2011
‘Date Announced’

The organisers of Cork Harbour Open Day are delighted to announce that the third Cork Harbour Open Day will take place on Saturday 10th September 2011.

The idea for a Harbour Open Day emerged three years ago following discussions between various stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of the Integrated Strategy for Cork Harbour. A group comprising of representatives from UCC, City and County Councils and the Port of Cork set about working together to engage with users of the Harbour and to organise the Open Day.

Last year Cork Harbour Open Day was a huge success with great weather and hundreds of people enjoying a selection of free family activities available on the day. Activities organised suited all ages and ranged from tours on board an Irish Naval Ship, sailing, kayaking, rowing, RNLI information day and crab fishing for the younger generation!

Organisers of this year’s Cork Harbour Open Day said: ‘We are hoping for a similar line up for 2011 and are encouraging people to organise events for the day, which can be jointly promoted under Cork Harbour Open Day. Most of the promotion was done through the Cork Harbour website last year, with high traffic volumes visiting the site on the lead up to the event. This year the website ( has been re-designed to be more user friendly, contain information on Cork Harbour and promote events such as Cork Harbour Open Day.’

‘Cork harbour Open Day is all about embracing what Cork Harbour has to offer in terms of leisure amenity and raises awareness of the many different activities available for people in the harbour both on and off the water. Last year was such a success; we are determined to make 2011 even better. Our ultimate aim is to extend the day to a weekend event over time’

Cork Harbour is the second largest natural harbour in the world, next to Sydney Harbour, offering beautiful locations for enjoying the outdoors, dramatic coastlines, and excellent leisure facilities, and is home to some very talented artists, sportsmen and women, and people who are passionate about the history, heritage and cultural value of Cork Harbour.
