County Shows, County Fairs and Agricultural Shows

County Show, County Fairs and Agricultural Shows

Visiting a UK Country Show, County Fayre or Agricultural Show is one of the best ways to enjoy the great British countryside and have a superb day out. What's more, there are some great County Shows in Ireland that can help you fully appreciate all that Ireland has to offer.

You will find a somewhat eclectic mix of fun and entertainment including top class livestock, horse and dog shows and lots of traditional arts and crafts. At some of the bigger county shows you will also find some major star attractions so it is worth having a look at their websites to see what's on offer.

If you like to take part in competitions, or just enjoy watching others compete, then a County Show is the perfect day out as you will find hundreds of competitions ranging from fruit & veg to arts and crafts and, of course, lots of animals.

A County Show is a great day out for the family and you can often save money by buying tickets in advance.
