An exciting outdoor, high energy, positive lifestyle event for all the family the Festival showcases Dublin’s regenerated Docklands. Utilising the unique urban setting of Grand Canal Dock the 2017 Festival will be held on the 20th & 21st May.



Enjoy the exciting urban space of Grand Canal Dock, originally built in the 1790s and now providing a world class recreation space in central Dublin. Our mix of on water activities is designed to give everybody an opportunity to participate.



Local cafes, bars and restaurants, many of which face onto the water, provide wonderful al fresco facilities. These are complemented by our many on land activities on Grand Canal Plaza.
