Bored for something to do this weekend? Sick of the talk surrounding the referendum?

You should check out Battle for the Bay this weekend on Dollymount beach on Bull Island.

Across the weekend, there will be a lot of fun things to do and see at this beach festival. 

The concept behind the festival is pretty simple: "Fun, Wind, Water…and Fun!!!"

The weekend is jam-packed with music, food, family fun events, accessible water sports and competitions.

The Battle for the Bay is a great opportunity discover your inner water adventurer. If that's not your thing, it's a chance to see other people making an eejit of themselves.

Win win either way.

Beach Market

The beach market is definitely one of the main attractions at the Battle of the Bay this year brought to you by Urban Markets.


Plenty of bands and musicians will take to the Tidal Wave Stage and DownDaRoad stage over the weekend and the fabulous King Kong Club will bring their own unique twist to the weekend with their interactive music shows.

The music and entertainment will continue into the night in various venues near the beach.


From KiteBoarding, Beach Volleyball, and Paddle Boarding - there are plenty of things to test your mettle on at Battle of the Bay. 

You have to register and pay for some events here

Family Fun

Unleash your inner child at the Bio Diversity Village, the Kite introductions for the newcomers, the Mega Funfair and Crazy Kid Rides.

The best past? No ticket required.
