Puck Fair

PUCK FAIR

10th to 12th of August 2022 Killorglin

Street fair & festival

Puck Fair

For three days in August, a goat is crowned king of Killorglin and reigns over a street party where people trade cattle and sell wares. Puck Fair is the oldest festival in Ireland and coincides with the Gaelic celebration of Lughnasa.

 

It is so old that academics disagree about exactly when the fair started and a number of conflicting origin stories have been handed down through the years.

 

Puck Fair first officially appears in the written historical record in 1613, but the one thing scholars do agree on is that the fair would have been in existence well before that date, perhaps even originating in the pre-Christian era.
