The Irish Maritime Festival

IMF Tall Ship

The Irish Maritime Festival is Ireland’s largest annual maritime, food and family festival.  It takes place each summer on the quayside at Drogheda Port. 

Our vision is that the Irish Maritime Festival will continue to grow and become an international standard festival attracting visitors from near and far to explore Drogheda and the Boyne Valley, and to establish the Irish Maritime Festival as a nationally recognised and celebrated event on the Irish Festival calendar.

Hosted, planned and managed by Louth County Council, in conjunction with the Drogheda Port Company, the festival is a great opportunity to explore and enjoy all that this beautiful and historic maritime town has to offer!
