The Tall Ships Races takes place this August 23 - 26 in Dublin, with a host of fun and free family activities taking place over the weekend.
The free family programme includes nautical-themed workshops, an interactive sea orchestra, an open-air trapeze and circus sideshow, a shipwreaked silent disco for kids and an array of roving bands and performers.
The Lords of Strut Street Show is a high-energy, comic, acrobatic show with break-dancing, contortions, acrobatic ladders, acrobalance and very original comedy, while The Barren Carousel Family Sideshow will dazzle you with backcracking contortions and death defying aerial feats.
There will also be a fun fair and outdoor ice rink for four consecutive nights, and a charity event to break the world record for the most amount of people participation in Rock the Boat in aid of Foroige.
