Celebrating Country Sports, Living and Conservation for Over Four Decades


“The Great Game Fairs of Ireland team have quite uniquely organised 66 Game Fairs in a unbroken run over 40 years and have been continuously publishing the Irish Country Sports & Country Life magazine for over 30 years. It has been recognised that the long-term success of the brand has been down to impeccable planning, innovative marketing and the team’s enthusiastic commitment to delivering for their customers, be they traders, sponsors or visitors.

In spite of extensive contingency planning, the decision had to be taken to postpone the 2020 Irish Game Fair, at Shanes Castle, to 26 – 27 June 2021.

Fortunately, as part of our contingencies we had put in place and test marketed plans for a VIRTUAL GAME FAIR and this event will open, with the slogan ‘the Game Fair you can visit every day,’ on 29 – 30 August 2020 and run throughout the complete year as an additional country sports resource. Our objectives for this event are that it provides a vibrant, worldwide forum for country sports enthusiasts through entertainment, competitions, discussions and information and also provides a ‘one stop’ marketplace for country sports shopping.

As you can see, we have attracted a good range of exhibitors organised in traditional Rows and Pavilions, an excellent range of virtual and live competitions and attractions and bargains galore which will be constantly updated.”
