The Tall ships came into Dublin Port earlier today for this weekend's Riverfest. The 8 ships will welcome the public for a free tour on board from Saturday to Monday.
Riverfest will be taking over the River Liffey from the Sean O'Casey bridge, along North Wall Quay right through to Dublin Port and into Dublin Bay.
The festival will have a range of entertainment such as performances from the ThunderCat Racing boats and activities such as river ferries, cruises, boat tours, sailing dinghies, keelboats, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding.
There will also be many land activities to take part in such as zip lines, rock climbing, street performers, fun fair attractions and face painting which are all free to attend and take part in.
The Tall Ship Maybe left from Abercorn Basin, Belfast Harbour a couple of days ago and the crew members talked a bit about their trip to Dublin;
"I'm excited to be here, we've been at sea for a few days, stop here for awhile and get to see what Dublin has to offer and hopefully meet a few new people".
"I expect a bit of sharing of stories and talks of voyage as we've had an intense bit of sea sickness yesterday on our ship".
"I've sailed 7 times on this boat before and it's been the worst sea sickness ever, I'll be blaming that on the Irish Sea".
"There's quite a lot of jobs on the boats, because you can go out on the helm which is when your staring the boat or you could end up pulling on the ropes, bringing in the halyards, cooking then also someones got to make people happy because if everybody's sea sick there is got to be someone there to keep people motivated".
