National Crafts & Design Fair 2013
20 November 2013
It's that time of year again, in the run up to Christmas that people will have to start thinking about buying gifts. A perfect opportunity for this is the upcoming National Crafts & Design Fair 2013 which takes place in the RDS Dublin over the course of 4th to the 8th December.
Whether you are a confirmed shopaholic or completely phobic about shopping, the annual National Crafts & Design Fair, is just the place for you. For those who love shopping it’s the chance to browse and enjoy the unique work of more than 500 designers, artists, and craftspeople who will be taking part in the country’s largest celebration of crafts.
But if shopping just isn’t your thing, think of it as a heaven sent opportunity to buy all your Christmas gifts in a single shopping session! This annual fair is widely recognised as Ireland’s premier commercial craftwork showcase. Many of Ireland’s most respected craftspeople will be there, showing and selling top quality goods. The range is dazzling – everything from chocolates to high fashion, and because the goods are handmade by craftspeople, they have the added distinction of each one being unique.
Irish Country Hotels are delighted to be in attendance again this year as part of the Guaranteed Irish Shopping Village and our member hotels are busy preparing their homemade jams and other goodies for sample and sale over the course of the Craft Fair.
Our competition for 5 pairs of tickets has now closed. Winners of the tickets have been notified by e-mail and will receive their tickets in the post before the fair starts.
Thank You to all who entered.
