Féile na Mara is a culinary celebration of Achill's rich heritage with the sea and it showcases the bountiful harvest of the Atlantic Ocean. Events include cookery demonstrations, seaweed safaris, fish markets, seafood BBQs and a family sandcastle competition. Local (and guest) talent includes Cailín agus Buachaill Óg contests.
Se an aidhm atá ag Féile Bia na Mara ná cur chun cinn a dhéanamh ar bia éisc áitúila, eachtraí na mara agus céiluíradh a dhéanamh ar ár n-oidhreacht cultúrtha ar Oileán Acla, agus an Ghaeltacht. Tá an deireadh seachtaine spraoíuil seo maoinithe ag Údarás na Gaeltachta.
A Message from 2011 Guest Chef Ross Lewis
"It was with great pleasure that I accepted the invitation to be a part of the fantastic Seafood festival on Achill last year. The community and the organisational committee really come together to insure that the festival is truly a celebration of seafood at its best and to make sure that all of those who came got a true flavour of all of the great amenities that Achill has to offer. I would highly recommend the festival, there would be very few better ways to see the beautiful west of Ireland island of Achill."
