The Gathering Of The Vikings - 1 day to go!

13 Jun 2013

The Gathering Of The Vikings Festival is almost upon us!

On Saturday, the Viking’s will return to life as it was back then in the Viking Village, complete with warrior tactics, weapons displays, children’s combat and of course, a mini Battle Of Clontarf.

At the Viking Village, children will be able to take part in archery and warrior games among the bouncy castles, face painting and many many more activities and games.

The Food Village on the Promenade is an ideal place to stock up on local specialities, try dishes from the local Clontarf restaurants or to meet for a picnic and listen to live music while enjoying a taste of Clontarf. The weekend will be packed with something for everyone!
