The Great Game Fairs of Ireland

32Game-Fair-cooking1-221x300There are two very successful Game Fairs which take place at Shanes Castle near Belfast, and at Birr Castle in County Offaly. Having already been at the one at Shanes Castle at the end of June, the Burren Smokehouse will be having a stall at the one in Birr which will take place on 23 and 24 August 2014.

This is a festival with a very wide variety of attractions: shooting competitions, stalls for hunters, anglers, and gundog owners. Advice will be freely given to those who are seeking it for everything to do with hunting and angling.

For those who are not avid hunters, there will be jousting performances, a historical interactive timeline going back to Viking times, a falconry display, a re-enactment of the attack on the castle, and much more.

It goes without saying that you can't have a festival these days without showcasing one of the best things that Ireland has to offer, which is food! So in this spirit, there will be a food tent where you can find the Burren Smokehouse to sample some of our Burren Smoked Irish Organic Salmon.
