Castleconnell Craft Fair Limerick - Every Bank Holiday

If you are looking to start your Christmas shopping early this year and want to find some unique and excellent value gifts for your friends and family then I recommend a trip out to Castleconnell to the Castle Oaks Hotel for the Castleconnell Craft Fair.

The Fair runs every bank holiday and the admission cost of €3 all goes to charity. I was surprised on arriving at the amazing variety and number of stands.

The fair has now been running since 1989 and has gone from strength to strength with the number of stands now numbering over 40!I was speaking to one of the organising committee Mary O’Connor who said that over the two days of the fair over 2000 people attend the fair with the numbers growing every Bank holiday weekend through word of mouth.Mary also told me that
many people who attend on Sunday return on Monday with their friends!
The Fair runs from 12-6 every bank holiday so if you don’t make it this time make sure to get there on one of the bank holidays before Christmas to pick up the perfect gift!

Some sample photos are below and I am settingup a page for the Fair as one of our Sub Sites, It will contain more information from some
of the exhibitors as well as links to those that have websites. This is a great example of a community working together to bring the best in handmade and artisan products not just to those in their community but to Limerick as a whole. So if you are looking for something to do tomorrow then why not hop in the car and nip our to Castleconnell and while you are picking up some bargains don't forget that the Castle Oaks does a lovely Lunch!

The Fair has a page on the Local Castleconnell website [ Here ] or email then [ Here ]
I will post a link to the subsite I am setting up as soon as its done.

would like to promote or if you would like us to setup one of our Subsite for you then just drop us an email and remember that the subsite listing for anyone who does not have a website is free!
