Just 32 days before Christmas, the last Clontarf Castle fair of this year offers the perfect opportunity to add sparkle to your Christmas with some beautiful jewellery – with every budget catered for, from faux vintage gems to real diamonds and pearls, Marie Curran, Strictly Vintage and Janet Greeves being among the more than 40 dealers attending the fair. Pick up some pretty vintage china and elegant crystal for your festive table from Vintage Cakestands Ireland, or treat yourself to a fine new old dining table perhaps from Loughgall Antiques, who as usual will have a selection of well priced antique furniture. You may even find a dress for that special occasion, with vintage fashion and accessories from Eily Henry, Grannys Attic and Leontia, while bookaholics will enjoy browsing the offerings of James Howell Rare Books and Sykes Books and Antiques. Enjoy a wonderful day of treasure hunting in the lovely surroundings of Clontarf Castle, with free parking and all the amenities of a top class hotel.

A big day out for Treasure Seekers!
Sunday the 24th March will see more than over forty traders exhibiting at the Clontarf Castle antiques fair and the spacious hotel ballroom will be packed to capacity with the precious treasures of decades past. Organiser Joan Murray maintains that there is no need to worry about breaking the bank however, there will be plenty of opportunity to spend as little or as much as you can afford. Pretty vintage jewellery will be available from under €20, or, if the sky’s the limit, you can splash out on a diamond for a very special occasion. Antique furniture is surprisingly good value, according to Joan, especially as it was made to last, with quality materials. If you go along for a browse, and not intending to buy, you will always find something to catch your fancy, whether an old postcard that brings back fond memories, or an out of print book that you have been trying to track down for years.
The fair runs from 11.00am to 6.00pm, and admission is €3.50.
