The weekend of (August 4th to August 6th) we’re all down on the quayside and around town to continue the tradition of one of Irelands Longest Running Maritime Festivals.The Annual Festival has been rejuvenated over the last few years and is once again growing.

The big event is on Sunday with all kinds of family events down by the quayside. With displays of traditional Irish art, children’s entertainment, market stalls and exhibits by the lifeboats, emergency services and much more it will create a truly magical weekend for everyone.

To finish up this years festival we have a real highlight on Sunday 21st August in the Arklow bay Hotel. Friends of Philo present a Thin Lizzy Tribute act in aid of Arklow Lifeboat celebrating 100 years. Doors open at 8PM, see you at the Arklow Bay Hotel.

This event is held primarily as a fundraising event for Arklow Lifeboat, through generous sponsorship from local businesses we are able to provide a lot of the events for free, so please support the local businesses who support Arklow Lifeboat.

See you down at the Quay!!!
