Over 7,000 kite fliers and spectators of all ages gathered in North Bull Island, Clontarf, to experience the spectacular Dublin Kite Festival on Sunday 12th June 2016 . The Dublin City Council event provided a jam packed day of exhilarating fun for all the family.

This year’s Dublin Kite Festival attracted attendees from around the country, brandishing an array of kites ready to take to the skies and beautify the Dublin skyline with a jumble of colour. There was free entertainment all day long ensuring that attendees enjoyed a carefree Sunday afternoon reliving childhood memories of kite flying whilst having fun with friends and family.

Whether attendees were brilliant kite fliers, or failing kite triers everyone got off the ground in the end as there were plenty of kiting experts ready to lend a hand. The day also boasted lively music, exciting games, kite making workshops and a kite flying competition!

Dublin Kite Festival is brought to you by Dublin City Council and is supported by 98fm and Pure Magic.
