The eleven-day Courtmacsherry Harbour Festival swings into action on Friday, July 28 and runs until Monday, August 7. One of the most popular festivals in West Cork this is a family friendly festival, with events for everyone to take part in and enjoy.

As ever, there is a varied and packed programme. The beach banquet enjoyed enormous success following its introduction by the festival committee in 2016 and so it returns to Courtmacsherry Beach on Saturday, July 29. This is followed by a busy day on Sunday July 30, with ‘Human Foosball’ in the tennis court taking centre stage.

The main event – Regatta Day – is on Saturday, August 5 and the ever-popular fancy dress parade on Sunday, August 6 will be followed by a spectacular fireworks display.

Other fun events include crab fishing, bicycle races, dog show, hurling and soccer tournaments, family orienteering, charades, beach volleyball, kite making, boat fishing, pavement chalk drawing and more.
