SeaFest showcases Ireland’s abundant maritime resources – raising awareness of the value and opportunities provided by the sea and also celebrates our proud maritime heritage. It incorporates a series of marine-related business and research events, the annual Our Ocean Wealth Summit, as well as a maritime festival. A unique aspect of SeaFest is the number of local, state and national agencies and organisations that come together to plan this event.
SeaFest is also a key part of Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth: An Integrated Marine Plan for Ireland (HOOW) and its goal of increasing participation and engagement with the sea. For more information on the plan and on our oceans in general, visit www.ouroceanwealth.ie.
