Celebrating our Coastal Environment
Join us — on the water, on shore, and at the table
Come the solstice weekend of 22, 23 & 24 June, the sheltered waters of Donegal’s Lough Swilly will once again spring to life with sails big and small, with the slap of oars and paddles. The shoreline and golden sands of its beaches will play natural backdrop to games and competitions, to families and friends celebrating in the unique surroundings of our coastal environment.
No celebration would be complete without plenty of our coastal food culture: fresh fish and shellfish from our local waters; lamb and pork from our local fields – all of it turned into simply exceptional regional cuisine by our talented local chefs.

We also have a few exciting new additions on the cards for 2012. Together with the Earagail Arts Festival, we’re putting the finishing touches on a programme of evening music and entertainment anchored by Hillfolk Noir from Boise, Idaho playing what they call ‘junkerdash’ and what others describe as psychedelic swamp-shack rags. Tickets for the Henry Girls and Hillfolk Noir will be available in advance through the Box Office, Tel 074 912 0777, and from the White Harte pub.
Ever thought of having a go at a triathlon? Now you can ease into the sport at SeaFest with the Try-a-Triathlon being organised by the experts from the Letterkenny-based 247 Triathlon Club.
