Greetings and welcome to the Cobh Peoples Regatta. Boating has long been a way of life for many here in Cobh. That’s not surprising when the Island boasts the second biggest natural harbour in the world, making it an ideal location to explore the regions best water sports.
Situated just 15 miles from Cork City Cobh can be accessed by both road and rail. The town itself is charming with many good restaurants and bars. The only way to explore the town while belending in effortlessly with the locals is on foot.
Every August the harbour becomes a focal point for a regatta where small local sailing and rowing craft gather for races and not to say the least some craic agus ceol.
During the 3 day festival you’ll find live music in the island’s many pubs and clubs and maybe spot the odd fire-eater.
The 2011 regatta takes place on the 12th, 13th and 14th of August, so if your after a wild weekend and a pint or a civilized drink in the elegant srroundings of an ocean liner why not join us. We have been known to do things in style.
Please feel free to use this site to browse for recommended accomodation.
