What an amazing weekend of both nautical & culinary in Waterford this weekend. It saw the Tall Ships Race return to Waterford from 30th June to 3rd July where they start their journey of the first stage of the race out of Dunmore East , around west of Ireland and continue up to Greenock in Scotland. The sight of such large magnificent sailing boats in Waterford port really brought a great enthusiasm and buzz to the city with hundreds of thousands visiting.
The Festival opened on Thursday with the Captain’s Dinner serving 300 people, with local & Irish produce being served on the Menu.
