Vintage & Antiques Fair - 18 / 19th March
The Ballymaloe Vintage and Antiques Fair is held on the grounds of Ballymaloe House annually in March.
For 2017 on 18-19 March between 10am to 6pm the Ballymaloe Grainstore and Big Shed will for third year running be bursting with diverse treasures and pleasures and entry to the fair and parking are free of charge.
From the seriously elegant to the wonderfully retro to the gloriously kitsch, it will be two days of unabashedly eclectic 'get it while you can' goodness. Cherry pick the very best that Ireland has to offer in retro collectables, home wares, vintage fashion, up-cycles, plus fine mid-century and antique furniture. The hunt for unusual bits and quirky accent pieces is half the fun, with every visitor 'curating' their own Ballymaloe experience.
This year there will be a vintage car and tractor exhibition on the grounds of Ballymaloe House throughout the weekend and why not sign up for a Painting and Decoupage workshop and learn how to upcycle? (this 2 - 2 1/2 hour workshop will costs €70 per person and you will create your own unique item (see website to book - spaces limited).
On Sunday from 2 - 5pm the Cork Light Orchestra will be playing light instrumental music inspired by the salon, Jazz and light orchestras of the 1920's and 30's.
Come and enjoy an old-fashioned day out for all ages, Ballymaloe House will be hosting an old fashioned tea shop and our loyal local food heroes will be in The Big Shed where there will be plenty of seating available for family and friends.
Entry and parking for the Ballymaloe Vintage and Antiques Fair is free.
