Situated in the heart of the historic city of Derry/Londonderry it is an ideal base from which to explore the North West of Ireland, the Scottish Islands or as a starting point for UK cruising. Foyle Port Marina provides visitors with the opportunity to discover the cultural heritage of Ireland’s only completely walled city, the delights of the North Antrim Coast and the Giant’s Causeway and the rugged beauty as well as the hinterland of the Inishowen Penninsula and Donegal.

The Foyle Maritime Festival attracts a large number of visiting boats both locally and from afar who enjoy the unique opportunity to sail into this maritime gathering and savour the atmosphere and views along the riverfront first hand. As a visiting boat you will also be invited to be part of the dramatic showcase event which takes place on Friday 31st of July when hundreds of participants and performers come together to create a dramatic spectacle both on and off the water, with a parade of light on the water that includes the Clipper Race Fleet.

If you are an individual boat owner or part of a boat club and would like more information on sailing to this festival and being part of the showcase event please contact
