KERRY has another festival to look forward to this autumn as Cromane Seafest hosted the official launch party for the upcoming Food & Maritime Festival last weekend.

Taking place on September 14/15, the village will enjoy an array of activities. The Seafest Committee Crew, made up of local people from different age groups, have put together an amazing festival celebrating Cromane’s finest local seafoods with maritime market tastings where you can meet the friendly fishermen who work hard to bring you the freshest and finest Cromane Mussels, Oysters and Salmon.

Local Oyster Farmers will be the stars of the weekend when they battle it out for Cromane First Oyster Shucking Champion.  Festive go-ers that are not seafood lovers, can still enjoy the fayre with an abundance of quality festive food trucks.
