Hooked! Killybegs 2017 is a family friendly event which invites you to experience the many sides of the fishing industry in Ireland`s premier fishing port. Discover the fascinating history of the boats, factories and people of the town or meet the sea-life face to face with interactive displays!

Watch and marvel at the speed and skill of expert net menders and fish filleters and hear some tall tales from sea going storytellers. It`s not all fishy - local entrepreneurs, craftspeople and community groups will be showing off their wares.

It all sounds like hungry work so luckily you`ll never be too far away from a delicious seafood snack! Sample the entries in the Food Coast Donegal Chowder Cook Off 2017 and vote for your favourite. Pick up recipes and tips and learn how to produce your own spectacular seafood spread with cookery demonstrations from local chefs and maybe a celebrity or two!

Hooked! Killybegs 2017 is a free event run by volunteers and made possible with funding from Fisheries Local Action Groups. With fish, fun and food, there is something for everyone at Hooked! Killybegs 2017.

As part of the Hooked Maritime Festival, the Donegal Chowder Cook Off will see the best of Donegal chefs come together to compete for the title of 2017 Donegal Chowder Champion. Visitors to this event are guaranteed a feast for the senses as they sample the range of chowders and cast their vote for the best. The winner will go to the All Ireland Cook Off in Kinsale in 2018.
