Fodor's Expert Review Tullamore Show

The Midlands Family Fodor's Choice

Ireland's biggest agricultural gathering (and one of its longest established) attracts 60,000 annually in the second week of August, when the largest assembly of cattle anywhere in the country compete in 1,000 classes for 42 national titles. Apart from the many different breeds of cows, there are also sheep-shearing competitions, cooking demonstrations, exhibits of local artisinal produce, displays of vintage farm machinery, and fashion shows. An international visitor center caters to the huge crowds of overseas tourists who flock to the show, which appeals to all generations. Scores of trade stands encourage you to spend money, and an art and photography section features the work of local artists.
