Craft Festival THIS SUNDAY……11th November Royal Marine Hotel Dunlaoghaire

SOOOOooo……. the Craft Festival is on this Sunday and we couldn’t be more excited. The talent on board is impressive. You can see a list of all the stands here. 

This event is Family friendly and is Free entry. We host over 60 stands of quality affordable contemporary design and handcrafted items. We boast that we are unlike other fairs and do not have much overlap in stands so you are not attending a fair with 50% of it filled with the same thing over and over again. Each vendor is hand picked and has gone through a rigorous vetting process in order to keep our customers high standards fulfilled.

On the day as always we do a charity collection and raffle for Dublins homeless and collect winter woolies and toiletries to be distributed between soup runs and merchants quay. In the past people have been very generous with this and I know the receivers are very grateful. For more info on what we do check out this link….

The raffle on the day is always fun, we run a lucky dip style process where prizes big and small are given out all day long. Some prizes are well sought after while others are just a token from us to say thanks for supporting the good cause. Some prizes are also donated from our wonderful standholders and we can’t thank them enough for their generosity.

We open to the public at 10am and finish up at 5pm. We are fully indoors so hail rain or shine , no excuses 😉 We are accessible by Dublin bus and Rail services. Check here for info on our location . There is a coffee dock and restaurant in the hotel for food. We have a few stands selling delicious edibles to keep you going on your way around the 60+ stands.  While a few stand holders do accept credit cards, most do not have this service and bank machines are located at both ends of marine road.  On street parking is free on Sundays, There is a hotel car park for easy access, this is not free. and I believe the shopping centre next door has weekend rates also if you wish.

Many Standholders have specials on for this event and some specialise in personalised items so it is in perfect time to get orders in before Christmas.

We look forward to seeing you on the day and remind you that when you buy from a small business you make someone do a happy dance 🙂


Charity Collection, Craft Festival Sunday 11th November, 10am-5pm FREE ENTRY for all the Family.

The weather is getting colder and more unpredictable and it always makes me feel lucky, lucky i have my creature comforts. The numbers of people with no home, or no secure home or living in b&b’s is frightening. Each and every one of us can make a difference, no matter how small it is, it is still appreciated and valuable.

The last few years I have been putting together donations of winter woolies and toiletries for those who don’t have the same luxuries as I do. And I would love your help. I will be collecting from the raffle table at the CRAFT FESTIVAL on November 11th in the royal marine hotel dunlaoghaire and also the GIFT FAIR on November 25th also in same venue.

All I’m doing is providing an outlet which is convenient for you to drop off items and I can deliver them into the relevant places. (previously “a lending hand soup run” and merchants quay) Taking any hassle out of it for you. Plus you get to do some shopping at the Craft Festival and Gift Fair at the same time, knowing you did your bit to help out.

I know I appreciate your help and I can guarantee the people who need the stuff appreciate it too. I know it makes me feel good to be able to help and I can guarantee you will feel good too.

Items that can be dropped in to me are

*Socks and Gloves
*Scarves and Hats
*toiletries -roll on deodorant, sanitary towels, tampons, toothbrush and paste, wet wipes, shampoo etc
*jumpers / coats
*single sachet soups and coffee

*granola bars/dried fruit

Please do not donate any other clothing items as they will be left, relevant charity shops can accept these and pass them on appropriately.

I will be at the raffle table inside the door of the Craft Festival in the royal marine Hotel in Dunlaoghaire on Sunday the 11th of November and also Sunday the 25th of November at the Gift Fair. Doors open from 10am to 5pm and Admission Is FREE. The raffle on the day also goes to helping homeless people and prizes are given throughout the day as a lucky dip challenge. Many of our stand holders have already donated items, and along with some horrendous boobie prizes from my self you will hopefully walk away with something.

This is a FREE family event where all your Christmas shopping can be done in a day. We hand pick high quality businesses  and Crafts people to provide you with unique and practical gifts. You are sure to find something you want at this event as there are over 50 different stands to choose from.

Thank you in advance and hope to see you at one of these events.

Summer Gift and Craft Festival 20th May 2018

Free events in Dublin can be hard to find, but we have an awesome one for you in just a few short weeks.

Over 50 stands on board already for this fantastic summer event. It is hosted in the Royal Marine hotel in Dunlaoghaire and if you aren’t aware of this hotel it is just stunning, It over looks the dunlaoghaire piers and has a lovely view of the goings on in the bay.  You can see the full list of standholders here 

We have some huge talent on board with the majority of our exhibitors being crafters. We have hand picked our stands so the quality is high and the variety is vast.

On the same day I believe the Red Bull Flugtag is on at the pier, so it will be well worth making a day of it out to dunlaoghaire. People have built and been creating vessels in with to jump off the harbour walls into the sea with and “fly”. Not many go far but its a bit of fun.

We will have the usual raffle for charity on the day giving away lucky dip prizes all day so no waiting around to hear if you have won. This had proved very successful at our last events. Some of our standholders have even donated prizes already, and as usual I have a few boobie prizes just for fun 😉


This is a family friendly Free event so all are more then welcome.

Competition on our facebook right now where you can win vouchers to spend on the day.
