A week of maritime-related festivity is underway today (Saturday) as Coastival gets going in Dun Laoghaire, with the Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta from next Thursday through to Sunday contributing mightily to a peak of dynamic interaction between town entertainment and sea sport through the unique harbour.
Our partners in Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council have created a fantastic interactive guide and events programme for Coastival, which they will keep updated over the coming weeks as more events and attractions get added to the schedule!
