Coastal Delights Await This Weekend at the Howth Maritime and Seafood Festival

The much-anticipated Howth Maritime and Seafood Festival is back, promising another unforgettable weekend of entertainment, delicious cuisine, and the very best of what Howth has to offer. 

The two-day celebration is set to take place along the seafront promenade on 9-10 September 2023. Running from noon to 6pm each day, visitors will get to indulge in a range of activities that celebrate the rich maritime history and vibrant culture of one of Ireland’s most picturesque coastal villages.

As expected, the delicious food on offer is the major drawcard of the festival, with local pubs and restaurants displaying a mouth-watering array of seafood dishes that showcase the area’s coastal bounty along with the stunning waterfront views. There will also be live music, a circus tent with aerial acts, the Strictly Come Howth dancing competition, vintage games and inflatables for all ages to enjoy across the weekend.

The annual event is delivered in partnership with Howth Tourism, an organisation dedicated to promoting the area’s attractions and enhancing the visitor experience. Fully guided tours and experiences are on offer along with self-guided walks and trails, giving all who visit Howth plenty things to see and do.

The Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Adrian Henchy said: “This is an event that celebrates Fingal’s rich maritime heritage and gives visitors a chance to enjoy some of the finest seafood going. I encourage everyone to come and join in festivities over the weekend and to make the most of what our region has to offer.”

Adding to the excitement of the festival, the Howth Yacht Club will be hosting the ICRA & J24 National Championships 2023. This prestigious event will see over 100 boats and some 1,000 competitors battling it out on the water between Ireland’s Eye and Lambay Island off the Fingal coastline.
