Richmond Barracks

Applications for the Christmas Fair are now closed!

Applications for our Christmas Fair taking place on November 26 and 27 are closed. Thank you to everyone who applied. 

This November, 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, which welcomed over 3,000 visitors, we would like to hear from a diverse array of local businesses, craftspeople and vendors who are interested in taking a stall at the Christmas Fair.

The Christmas Fair will have workshops to attend, entertainment to enjoy, food to feast on and a huge 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.

What we are looking for:

We are providing an opportunity for local businesses to sell their goods and for local social enterprises to showcase what they do.

We would like to ensure a varied market that provides the public with a sensory experience, selling themed art and craft, winter themed food suitable for gifting, seasonal gifts, Christmas wreaths, handmade jewellery, clothes and so on.


We are looking for vendors for our inside market shopping area who sell Christmas related or gift related goods and food vendors for the garden area that use seasonal produce and winter warming dishes.

We will select, from applications received, a range of products and gift ware that will be suitable for the Christmas season. Each applicant will be given points based on their application and upon this basis will be considered for entry. We will look for:
