A number of Tall Ships are voyaging from Belfast to Dublin at the end of May for the new Dublin Port River Festival
on the June Bank Holiday Weekend.
The ships will take part in the Dublin Port Riverfest being organised by Dublin Port Company. Anyone can sign up to crew on a Tall Ship from Belfast to Dublin.
The ships will leave Belfast on the 28th of May and arrive in Dublin on the 31st of May. You will then stay on board for a night in Dublin to enjoy the festivities. There are a number of berths still available on board the ships during this voyage for anyone that would like to experience life at sea on a traditional Tall Ship. Participants must be aged between 16 - 99 years and NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!
Sail Training Ireland, your National Sail Training charity, can assist you in coordinating your voyage or visiting the ships while in port.
The full cost of the voyage is €345 including meals and accommodation.
There are a very limited number of part-bursary funds available for 16-30 year olds that are nominated by Youth Organisations. More information on request.
A tall ship voyage truly is a once in a life time experience. Hugely beneficial to young people to develop life-skills and broaden their horizons. No less beneficial to older generations.
