A Great Catch! Dalkey Lobster Festival Brings Seafood and Jazz to South Dublin this Weekend
Dalkey Lobster Festival is back! From August 24th to the 27th, this vibrant suburb will be the place to visit to enjoy the freshest Irish seafood, specially lobsters, cooked in all your favourite ways by local chefs.
The village’s streets will be filled with food and music, as live jazz performances will entertain seafood lovers as they devour the catch of the day.
The event will also allow visitors to learn about fishing culture and sustainability, the Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) North East board will host live cooking demonstrations and share oceans of knowledge on sustainable lobster fishing.
On the 26th and 27th of August, BIM, Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency, will host an event titled “Why Knot?”, in which they’ll aim to promote sustainability in Ireland’s Fishing Industry and will introduce guests to their Fishing for Litter initiative, net recycling and Responsibly Sourced Standard.
This year and for the first time, Castle Street will be closed on Saturday and Sunday and 20 marquees will be serving the finest of Dalkey Lobster from their local waters. Along with the food, there will be family friendly activities including a Kids Zone sponsored by Bank of Ireland with face painting, puppet shows, magicians and more in the Church’s garden.
The festival’s partner charity this year is the Children’s Medical Research Centre at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin.
