Dunmanway Agricultural Show traditionally takes place on the first Sunday in July each year at Dromleena Lawn (Racecourse), Dunmanway.
Dunmanway Show is renowned as one of the highlights on the showing circuit each Summer. Walking around the showgrounds is like looking at a slice of country life. From pedigree animals to homebaking; everything is on display.
Apart from the hotly contested classes for horses, ponies, cattle, sheep, goats, poultry, domestic arts, horticulture and dogs, we have a wide variety of activities to keep our spectators entertained.
There is always a wide range of sideshows; including Macra na Feirme competitions, Live music and dance floor, FREE children's entertainment, most appropriately dressed lady and family, bonny baby competition and much more. We hope to see you there!
