Hooked 2017

2nd September 2017, Killybegs

Keep up to date with festival updates:

Directed at both adults and kids, this year’s Hooked will take place on Saturday, 2nd September at LYIT, Killybegs. Our aim is to build on this festival each year and promote Seafood and Killybegs as one, showcasing the town as not only an industrialised town but one of marine tourism and a leader in the seafood sector, with the hope of making it a National Seafood Calendar Event.


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.

These are some of the events and displays from last year. This year we hope to build on that and that every business will take part in some way. Each business may decide what they wish to do to take part, e.g. stand, fun event for kids, fish displays, etc. (there’s a way everyone can participate, think of it as a way to showcase the town and your business at the same time).

In order for us to get the event together, we would ask that you could come back to us as soon as possible to let us know if you wish to take part. This needs to be done in order to organise area space at the LYIT for the event and also for promotion for day.

If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact Killybegs Community Council: or leave a message via Facebook page.
