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.”
In 2023, the Puck Fair Committee unanimously agreed that the role of the goat, our King Puck, should evolve.
Rather than remaining on the stand for three days, this year he will be raised on his stand for a short period following his coronation. He will then not be seen again until the final day of Puck Fair when a brief dethroning ceremony will take place.
We are delighted that King Puck will continue to play an important role in the Festival and uphold the longstanding traditions which we are all very proud of.
