A free tour of Europe’s most advanced maritime college is just one of the events at this year’s Cork Harbour Day celebrations.
The National Maritime College of Ireland will open their doors to the public and provide guided tours of their superb facilities on September 10th from 12pm – 5pm.
This event will include a sea survival pool showcase that can demonstrate world class special effects that includes wave generation and strobe lighting.
The multi million euro 270-degree Kongsberg simulator will also be on show. This will be opened to the public for the first time and is capable of simulating our very own harbour along with famous ports such as New York and Sydney harbour.
This family friendly event will also have a face painter along with local food producers set up around the campus.
This is the third year of Cork Harbour Open Day and organisers are hopeful that the wide range of events, such as, the open day at the National Maritime College of Ireland, concerts on Spike Island, photographic Exhibition in Camden Fort and guided tours of an Irish naval ship will attract many people.
