Honey Show

2021 Co. Dublin Honey Show and Craft Fair

Now that the Covid 19 restrictions are being relaxed, County Dublin Beekeepers Association have decided to hold it’s honey show on Saturday 6th November 2021.  The Honey Show is the highlight of the beekeeping year, and we, Dublin beekeepers, welcome visitors from everywhere to participate in our show.

This year will be a little different to recent years for two reasons:

1.    Our old venue in Rathgar is being re-configured and reduced in size, so no longer suitable for our show. We have found a superb new venue in nearby Dundrum – Taney Parish Hall. This venue is bigger, with great facilities including catering, parking, and access – it is a two minute walk from the Luas stop in Dundrum. We are really excited to have such a great venue for future Honey Shows, and the capacity to grow and develop the annual event.

2.    Whilst excited with our new venue, the ongoing challenge of COVID 19 requires us to factor into our planning the safety and well-being of everyone involved in the preparation and implementation of our show, and the visitors who attend. Certain restrictions will be necessary to achieve this, and it is hoped that this does not detract from the enjoyment of the event.

At the 2021 Honey Show there will be:

  • Over 30 Competition Classes on display.
  • Display will include:
    • Honey,
    • Beeswax products,
    • Meads,
    • Cakes,
    • Biscuits
    • Photographs and
    • Other Crafts
  • Craft Fair
  • Local Honey for Sale  

Please note that Covid precautions will apply, such as mask wearing, hand sanitisation and control on numbers in the hall.  To avoid congestion on the day, the Honey Show Committee has decided to waive the entry fee for 2021, and encourage use of the online application form.  If you have any queries, please contact the CDBKA Honey Show Secretary, Peter Finnegan at honeyshow@dublinbees.org or 086 815 1379
