What’s the Craic?

2020 Laser Radial Youth European Championships

Social Schedule

We have a great social schedule planned for before and during the Championship with the Opening Ceremony on Sunday 5th July, Mid-week Barbeque and Closing Prizegiving Ceremony on Saturday 11th July.

Bangor will be home again to the Seaside Revival on weekend 4th/5th July with lots of different things to join in with – sea swims, vintage attractions and music .

Ask about our home hospitality for individual parties who are travelling to Bangor for the first time and not part of a bigger squad.

Prepare for lots of fun or as we say in Northern Ireland – “what’s the craic?”

Bangor – part of Ards and North Down Borough.

Bangor is part of Ards and North Down Borough and is jam packed with things for you to do – whether its family fun, music, sports and leisure, film and cinemas, museums, air-tastic trampolining or go-karting at Eddie Irvine Sports Complex. If you click the image below, you can find links to much of it on the visitardsandnorthdown website. We can help you organise activities if you plan to book some as a group.

There are lots of maps under “Getting Here” on the website, listing the various type of attractions around the “Ards Peninsula”. This is great fun to take time to drive or cycle around, and you can also get a ferry at Portaferry to Strangford to come up the other side of Strangford Lough, taking in Castle Ward and many other sights around the Borough.

Discover Northern Ireland

If you are here early or have time during the week while your son or daughter is out on the water, go and discover some of the World’s leading visitor attractions around Northern Ireland  – Titanic Belfast, Giants Causeway, Carrick-o-Rede rope-bridge, Antrim coast, Portstewart beach, Mountains of Mourne, or take some of the tours that have sprung up around Game of Thrones. Immerse yourself in the tourism experiences led by Northern Ireland locals.
