This December, in the heart of Inchicore, Richmond Barracks will host a Christmas Fair filled with lots of festivities.

Following on from the success of our Harvest Fair, we would like to hear from a diverse array of local businesses, craftspeople and vendors who are interested in taking a stall at our Christmas Fair.

The Christmas Fair will have workshops to attend, entertainment to enjoy, food to feast on and a variety of items such as art, clothing, crafts, design and gift options available to buy.

Visitors will be invited to drop in and browse stalls from local businesses, craftspeople and artists, with lots of unique gifts and Christmas things to buy. People can also try something new at our various family friendly workshops for all ages and enjoy the festive music, hot drinks and treats.
