    I’m coming up north for a weekend so would love to have a full weekend of car boot sales of second hand stuff can someone tell me of where to go to make my dream weekend some true. Thanks. Valerie

    1. Hello Valerie,

      As you may have noticed the NI Car Boot Page is a bit sparse and if you don’t find anything here, try


  3. Car boot sale in Armagh has returned to original location.

    1. Hi Claire,

      Thanks for letting me know!


  4. Great website great information

  5. Would be handy if these were all on one page with the southern carboots, I’m in Dublin and it’s handier to go north than out to somewhere like Ennis, would be good to be able to browse them all on the same page.

    1. Hi John – Thanks for your suggestion and I’ll give it some serious thought.


  6. found the site by accident, have been trying to find a good up to date site. have been using carbootrus details are not always up to date and you rarely receive a reply…..

    1. Hi Mariea,

      Welcome to “Collect Ireland” and I hope you found your visit useful. There’s generally somebody along to answer queries but we could do with a proper discussion forum. Sadly that’s unlikely to happen any time soon as the site already takes up far too much of my time.

      Hope you will be back soon.


  7. Does anyone know of any good car boot sales in Bangor, County Down on Saturdays? Seems there might be one at Clifton Road and the Abbey but cannot find any confirmation, recommendations or otherwise – anyone help? Thanks in advance x

  8. It is listed in carbootsRus, have tried to find it sever times without success. Spoke to some of the local people in town and they were not able to help. So I have ticked that one off my list. Sunday in Bangor isn’t too bad in the flagship shopping centre car park before centre opens at 1, starts around 8:30 / 9:00. Good luck

  9. Thanks Mariea – really appreciate the heads up x

  10. Went to Shambles at Armagh…couldn’t get in at 8.15! Gatekeeper says you really need to be there by 7am to get a space to sell. This info needs to be listed, we were very disappointed.

    1. Hi Barbara,

      Sorry to hear of your wasted journey and I have now amended the listing to highlight set-up times. I did state in the original listing that public opening was at 8.00pm and that would imply that setting-up after that time would be unlikely. Apologies again.


  11. Hi was wondering if anyone knows of any upcoming Christmas fairs and sales. Thanks

  12. Hi, I’m just wondering if anyone has been on the Buncrana Road car boot sale on Sunday? I’m planning to go to sell some stuff but I don’t know how busy that is ,, is it worth to go?….

  13. Does any one no what time the carboot sale starts at Bloomfield Castlereagh road on Wednesday please

  14. Does anyone know of any car boor sales in Newtownabbey, thanks

  15. No car boot sale now in Ballyshannon,finished due to loss of venue

  17. Hi can anyone tell me how to get to the shambles carboot sale please him coming from lisburn many thanks

    1. Hi Lynn,

      Probably too late for you know but there’s a map on the Council website which may help:


  18. Are there any good car boot sale around Coleraine, Ballymoney, Ballymena area? I have never been to one and I have items to sell. Must be indoors because of my health. Many thanks.

  19. Hi, there is a massive car boot at the Vineyard in Coleraine – it’s held once a month on a Saturday – you’d need to google Vineyard car boot to find out more – it’s very well attended and is set over a large area – it’s a fiver for a car which is very good. It’s indoor and outdoor (overflow). There’s also a cafe, a farmers’ market, a live band and toilets – highly recommend. There are also two car boots a week at Greysteel (past Limavady on the Derry road) – again huge crowds go to that.

  20. Thank you for your reply I have never been a trader before and don’t no how to contact the people are you sure there is one on tomorrow cause today is the 22nd of January I got on there booking site and they said the next one was on the 6 th of February if u can help I would be very grateful li

    1. Next sale is on the 6th February – I will be listing shortly.

  21. The carrickfergus sainsburys boot sale has stopped running. It’s confirmed on their Facebook page 😦

    1. Hi Sarah – Thanks for letting me know. I’ve just updated the page.


  22. Omagh was not on sunday past. No one there except 4cars there to sell. We were disapointed. Is there any other sight that i can check if the car boots are on before traveling to them?

    1. Hello Melissa,

      I’m sorry that you had a wasted journey – I do warn people to try and check with organisers but in the case of Omagh this is difficult. Their Facebook page is a total mess and I have contacted them this morning for an update.

      Best wishes.

    Hi there do you know if the car boot sale at Dundrum co. Down is still running on a Sunday morning, if so what time do sellers need to get there and how much is it?

    1. Hi,

      I have no longer have a listing for the Dundrum sale and I think that it’s finished. Here’s a number for it that I found online – probably ancient though. Let us know if you find out anything.

      Number is 028 437 51212



  24. any updates regarding the Dundrum co d owncar Boot sale? is It on any of the last 2 weekends in August 2016? Planning to go but cant find out if its on any time here.

    1. It’s not listed here because it’s not on – unless you know otherwise.

  25. Children in crossfire is now at 79 Strand Rd in Derry

    9-2pm sat and sun

    1. Hi,

      Thanks for letting me know and I have updated the Children in Crossfire listing. I see that their Facebook page says 76 Strand Road rather than 79 so I have gone with that. Best wishes. David

  26. Does anyone have any good and up-to-date information about car boot sales in Fermanagh? A lot of the information available online is out of date!

    1. Matthew,

      Disseminating information is the purpose of this blog and if you do hear of any Northern Ireland sales I would be grateful if you would let me know. I find that getting reliable information is like pulling teeth with some organisers actually wanting to keep their events secret! As you say, the internet is awash with out of date information and defunct Facebook pages but what can be done?

      Best regards.

      David Parks
