The annual Castleconnell Craft Fair takes place on Sunday and Monday of the October Bank Holiday weekend (26th & 27th) from noon to 6, at the Castle Oaks House Hotel.
The Fair, which will be opened on Sunday by Mayor Sheahan, showcases only Irish-made crafts of the highest quality, attracts thousands of visitors over the two days of the event and is one of the longest running and largest Craft Fairs in the Midwest.
This year we have over 45 exhibitors from all over Ireland, featuring painting, jewellery, food, woodwork, ceramics, to mention but a few.
Organisers of the Castleconnell Craft Fair are delighted to have such an impressive line-up of Limerick talent at the fair. This weekend we welcome over 14 Limerick-based craft workers, proof positive that Limerick is a cradle for creativity and entrepreneurship. We love to support the creative industry and give quality workmanship a platform. Buying directly from the makers is surely a treat in itself, knowing that your purchase supports an Irish job.
The Craft Fair is more than just a Craft Fair. It offers many other attractions to the visitors including:
Limerick’s Junior, Intermediate and Minor camogie teams have done the county proud in the 2014 All-Irelands, and we are privileged to be able to give our visitors a chance to lift all three cups which will be on display at the Craft Fair.
You will also have the opportunity to enter the prize draw for a chance to win one of the unique gift hampers or tickets to see Andrea Bocelli in Dublin next month.
The event is non-profit, with all of the proceeds going to local community groups.
So, visit Castleconnell and be assured of a lovely afternoon out.
