Puck Fair 2022
Puck Fair, running from 10th - 12th August, is an annual three day, family-friendly street festival that is like no other! Held in Killorgan, Co Kerry each year, a wild mountain goat is crowned king of the town by the Queen of Puck, who is traditionally a young local schoolgirl. There is a coronation parade and King Puck rules the town until his dethronement on the festival’s final day. It is an unusual concept for a festival but it never fails to provide excellent entertainment and to create a real buzz around Killorgan!
The goat’s coronation is only the beginning of what Puck Fair has to offer its visitors. There is something for everyone to enjoy, from horse and cattle fairs, to trade stalls and family events. There is never a dull moment over the three days as the festival is packed full of all types of entertainment. You can expect music and circus workshops, traditional Irish music and dancing, night-time concerts and pipe bands, just to name a few! Kids are also looked after with lots of fun activities, including face-painting, clowns, puppet shows and fancy dress.
Each year, the end of Puck Fair is marked with a magical fireworks display, the perfect ending for a perfect festival. It is the ideal event for all the family to spend time together and have a fun-filled, memorable experience. Killorgan is a truly beautiful town, with so much to do and see. To make the most of your visit, why not choose to stay in a Kerry B&B? Bed and breakfast accommodation is a fantastic way to get the full Irish experience, by immersing yourself in Irish culture and traditions!
