Fun, fresh air and frolics abound! The third annual Dublin Kite Festival took place on Sunday 14th June 2015 at North Bull Island, Clontarf. With free entertainment all day long, it was the perfect way to spend a summer Sunday with family and friends.

Next year’s Dublin Kite Festival is due to take place on Sunday 12th June and will attract kite fliers and spectators from across Ireland and overseas. It is sure to be an exhilarating event from start to finish.

As there is no parking available on Dollymount Strand, we will once again be providing a FREE KiteFest Express Road Train to help bring families and visitors to the event. The shuttle will run all day from the junction of Clontarf Road down the causeway to the roundabout near the beach, transporting you to the festival in style!

With a full day of free entertainment, the Dublin Kite Festival taking place at North Bull Island in Clontarf, Dublin 3 is packed full of activities and entertainment guaranteed to keep everyone entertained.

The festival will challenge kite enthusiasts from all over Ireland and abroad to show off their stunt skills and compete for a number of awards across a wide range of categories including most aerodynamic, most beautiful, and funniest.

So maybe you are a major kite enthusiast? A tourist from overseas?  Maybe you want a fun idea for a first date? A place to hang out and have fun with your friends? Or perhaps you’re just looking for fun ideas to keep the family entertained – everyone is welcome at the Dublin Kite Festival 2016.

The Dublin Kite Festival is brought to you by Dublin City Council as part of their year round programme of city-wide free public events.

We hope to see you there!
