Now in its 90th year, the Limerick Show is a unique event which aims to bring the people of Limerick City and County together.
Up to 15,000 visitors, 1,000 competitors and 150 trade exhibitors will descend on Limerick Racecourse on Sunday 25th August to experience the show that offers something for everyone.
Competitors showcase their best cattle, horses, sheep, goats, poultry, dogs, crafts and horticulture.
For the first time in Limerick Show history, a showcase of Ireland’s native breeds of farm-animals will take place. This is a unique opportunity to see some of Ireland’s oldest inhabitants. There is evidence of the Droimeann cow dating back as far as 920AD. Included in our display is Dexter, Irish Moiled, Droimeann and Bo Riabhach cattle, as well as Old Irish Game Fowl and Galway sheep. Come along and meet some of the unsung heroes who have dedicated their time, energy and money to ensure the survival of our rare breeds.
Limerick people love their food and at this years show we have a wide range of artisan food stalls for you to enjoy. Sample homemade cheese, jam, chutneys, bread and more from local suppliers. We also have cookery demonstrations where you can get some tips from the experts. Just make sure to arrive hungry!
If shopping is what you’re after then you’ve come to the right place. Our retail village has over 150 stalls for you to browse through. You can find something for everyone from jewellery, food, equestrian, children’s books, clothing, the list is endless! Our retail village is in the iconic stables of Limerick Racecourse this year so you can enjoy the atmosphere around the grounds while you shop.
