Stalls: Traditionally, Killorglin town centre is completely closed to vehicular traffic for the 3 days of Puck. Instead of cars, the streets are lined with a multitude of brightly coloured stalls, offering literally ‘something for everyone’. Tools, Clothes (work & fashion), Shoes & boots, Toys, Pictures & wall art, Music – instruments, CDs & DvDs, Jewellery, sunglasses & accessories, Household & cleaning products, Herbal remedies, Bric-a-brac and many, many more provide a mecca for the dedicated shopper, and terrific variety to interest even the most casual browser. Many are Puck regulars, setting out their wares in the same location year after year. Indeed, some stall-holder families have been coming here for generations. The addition of new and innovative stalls each year, however, ensures the market remains varied and interesting.

Food stalls of all sorts set up shop on the streets of Killorglin for the duration of the Festival. Some of these providers have attained legendary status over the years and for many revellers, a visit to Puck Fair is not complete without at least one trip to their favourite ‘eatery’. These stalls, together with the town’s many restaurants, which offer a range of excellent foods, ensure that our visitors have plenty of choice, with something to satisfy every taste-bud and every pocket. And all of this activity takes place in a traffic free, pedestrian-safe zone, making Puck Fair a child / family-friendly Festival, an ever-evolving yet very traditional event that remains welcoming and interesting to all ages and nationalities.
Craft Fair: A recent addition to the Fair has been the introduction of a Craft Fair on The Plaza at Library Place, just round the corner from the Puck Stand on The Square. This very large paved pedestrian area is a relatively new facility in the town, created some years back when the Library, Tourist Office and Council Offices were redeveloped. It makes an ideal location for the Craft Fair, offering a range of local, national & international hand-crafted and traditional products – from home-baking to hand-made jewellery, natural beauty & cosmetic products to clothes & accessories and much more. From its inception, this market has been a resounding success, reflected in its year on year growth.
