Each year we welcome our colleagues from the respective Fairs to Killorglin for Puck Fair. The Auld Lamass Fair takes place on Monday 24th August and the Great October Fair takes place from 3rd to 11th October.

The Puck Fair mobile Shop is now located at the top of the town . The shop is open daily and has a wide variety of Puck Fair Merchandise.
