When: July 2018


Féile na Mara, the Festival of the Sea, takes place on the gorgeous Achill Island on the Wild Atlantic Way. This is a celebration of seafood at it’s best, showcasing the spectacular seafood of the Atlantic Ocean and embracing Achill’s rich heritage.

Throughout the festival a great sense of community shines through, as local groups, business and the islanders all come together to revel in the best of island culture. The festival is packed with family fun events, boat trips, races, cooking demos, markets and so much more. And of course there will be nothing but the best and freshest seafood the west coast has to offer!

You couldn’t have a more fantastic setting for a festival. Achill Island lies off the coast of Mayo and is a feast for the senses. Right at the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way the island boasts rugged mountain terrain, roaring sea cliffs and glistening beaches.
