Viking Invasion

East Pier, Sunday 20th August 12pm – 5pm

The Irish National Sailing & Powerboat School has been the marine services provider to the hit TV series “Vikings” and is delighted to bring replica longboats, a Viking village and the Vikings themselves to Dun Laoghaire Harbour’s East Pier. This is all in conjunction with Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company as part of the Harbour Bicentenary Celebrations.

This family friendly, free event will have something for everyone, from fans of the TV show, to history enthusiasts and those who want to explore a replica Viking Longboat and see them in action on the water. The Village will be set up beside the Bandstand from 12 noon to 5pm, with the highlight of the afternoon at 3pm where two longboats will invade the harbour before engaging in a mock battle at sea.

Film and Television enthusiasts will not only find the show on the water enthralling, but they will be welcome to see all of what goes into dressing a Viking, the background logistics to a shoot and meet those who make this all happen for the screen. Our Marine Services team will be on hand to answer questions and to display what happens behind the camera!
