Sit with a pint out on the pier and enjoy the traditional boat racing.

Crews from all across the peninsula gather at the picturesque village of Ballydavid (Baile na nGall) for the annual regatta, racing the traditional naomhóg boats. Spectators pack the pier outside Begley’s and TP’s pubs to catch a glimpse of the action. Check the Facebook page to make sure it is going ahead, as it is weather dependent—but you’ll get a warm welcome in the pubs either way.
