Killorglin, in the geographical heart of County Kerry in Ireland,
is home to Ireland’s oldest fair.
This street festival has roots in the Gaelic calendar and is held without fail on the 10th, 11th and 12th of August every year with free family- friendly street entertainment daily.
“It is a time when old friends meet, when new friendships are forged and the cares of everyday living are put on hold.”
On Friday King Puck is dethroned and festival closes with a midnight fireworks display.
Thursday is fair day. As with the other days of Puck, there will be plenty of live music, entertainment, a fun fair and street food to enjoy. The Cattle Fair is not organised by the Puck Fair Committee but operates under a natural pre-ordained Act under Charter granted in 1613.
Wednesday is the Gathering, which includes the coronation of King Puck, the parade and the horse fair.
