If you only go to one fair this year make it the Gift Fair.
The Gift Fair boasts over 60 stands of fantastic Gifts. You are sure to find something for everyone on your Christmas list. This is a family friendly free admission event hosted in the Royal Marine hotel in Dunlaoghaire. You can see the full list of standholders HERE.
Whether you are shopping for yourself, searching for that perfect gift for that special someone, looking for a personalised gift, shopping for a kris kindle, hunting for a secret Santa gift, or just getting all your Christmas shopping done in a day, it is all possible here at the Gift Fair.
On the day as always we do a charity collection and raffle for Dublins homeless and collect winter woolies and toiletries to be distributed between soup runs and merchants quay. In the past people have been very generous with this and I know the receivers are very grateful. For more info on what we do check out HERE
The raffle on the day is always fun, we run a tombola style ticket raffle giving prizes big and small all day long. Some prizes are well sought after while others are just a token from us to say thanks for supporting the good cause. Some prizes are also donated from our wonderful standholders and we can’t thank them enough for their generosity.
We open to the public at 10am and finish up at 5pm. We are fully indoors so hail rain or shine , no excuses 😉 We are accessible by Dublin bus and Rail services. Check here for info on our location . There is a coffee dock and restaurant in the hotel for food. We have a few stands selling delicious edibles to keep you going on your way around the 60+ stands. While a few stand holders do accept credit cards, most do not have this service and bank machines are located at both ends of marine road. On street parking is free on Sundays, There is a hotel car park for easy access, this is not free. and I believe the shopping centre next door has weekend rates also if you wish.
Many Standholders have specials on for this event and some specialise in personalised items so it is in perfect time to get orders in before Christmas. Jewellery, art, photography, slate, beauty products, christmas decorations, glass, wreaths, baby products, cushions, knitted wear, cards, lamps, cakes, leather, kids clothes, handbags, hats, dolls, sock monkeys, hand creams, perfumes, costume jewellery, dog accessories, pearls and homewards WE HAVE IT ALL!!!!
We look forward to seeing you on the day and remind you that when you buy from a small business you make someone do a happy dance 🙂
