Portpatrick Lifeboat Week
Lifeboat Week is one of the highlights in Portpatrick and this year it starts on Sunday 28th July 2019 finishing on Saturday 3rd August.
The week long celebrations provide ideal entertainment for holiday makers and villagers alike. The week kicks off with the “Rib Raid” from across the water in Northern Ireland and culminates with a fun-packed Raft Race within the harbour and a firework display.
The week is packed with interesting and fun events organised by Portpatrick RNLI and the village community and is wonderful way for guests and locals to support our local Lifeboat.
