Cork Port Information

It is one of the largest natural harbors in the world – and those who live near Cork Harbor insist that it is also one of the most interesting.

It was the last stop for the most famous ocean liner in history, the Titanic, but it has been transformed into a center for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.

The port has been a working port and a strategic defensive hub for centuries, and it has been one of Ireland’s main employment hubs since the early 1900s. Traditional heavy industries have declined since the end 20th century, with the closure of Irish Steel at Haulbowline and shipbuilding at Verolme. It still has a major and strategic importance in the production, transport and refining of energy.

Giraffes roam its coastline, where tens of thousands of men and women have left Ireland, most never to return. The harbor is home to the world’s oldest yacht club and the Irish Navy.

This deep waterway has also become a vital cog in the Irish economy.

The “Afloat.ie Cork Harbor Page” is not a page of history, nor a hot topic. It is simply an exploration of this famous waterway, its color and its characters.

Cork Harbor Festival

From Ocean to City – An Rás Mór and the Port of Cork Open Day previously existed as two popular one-day events located at different times in Cork’s annual maritime calendar. The two event committees recognized the synergy between the two events and began to work together and share resources. In 2015, the Cork Harbor Festival was launched. The festival was designed on the principle of the open day, with Ocean to City – An Ras Mór as the flagship event.

Now in its sixth year, the festival has grown steadily. Although the 2020 physical festival has been canceled due to Covid-19, the event normally features nine festival days starting in the first week of June. It is full of events; all of this has been made possible through collaboration with over 50 different event partners in Cork City, as well as 15 towns and villages along Cork Port. The program grows year after year and showcases Ireland’s rich maritime and cultural heritage as well as water and land activities, with Ocean to City – An Rás Mór at the heart of the festival.

Set in the center of Ireland’s maritime paradise and at the gateway to Ireland’s Ancient East and the Wild Atlantic Way, Cork is perfectly positioned to host Ireland’s largest and most captivating harbor festival.

The Cork Harbor Festival Committee includes representatives from Cork City Council, Cork County Council, Cork Harbor, UCC MaREI, RCYC, Cobh & Harbor Chamber and Meitheal Mara.
