I was expecting a festive local fair highlighting traditional Irish products but what I experienced was more like a flea market. As for the goat, he is held in a small cage elevated above the sound stage with no room to move and being blasted with music. I personally would never go to this again and I am shocked they treat this goat this inhumanly. If I was a goat, I would want to loose.

We had a great time. 6 adults, 5 children. The first day when they raise King Puck onto the stand was a great ceremony. They raised him to the 1st floor of 3, and had to bring him back down because they forgot to crown him! Yes the stalls are filled with over priced junk from China, there is little in the way of local products for sale around the King Puck stand, but if you go nearer to the leisure centre, there are lots of local stools selling local products. There are stands which sell "2nd hand" power tools, but these were quite clearly stolen, no packaging, no power leads, no paperwork, just crates of power tools. The food stalls are pretty decent. The funfair was great fun which kept the children very busy and enthusiastic. Our kids loved it and looked forward to it everyday. Take cash. During the day there are lots of different things going on, all are advertised on the Puck fair website. Bands playing, cartoon characters walking through crowds, hair braiding. The pubs are open pretty much all the time, and serve alcohol in glasses for inside and plastic for outside. Staff on the door stop anyone from going outside with glasses. This is good because there are children everywhere and limits accidents. Pubs will have differing brands on the plastic cups to make sure you don't travel between pubs. Falveys was particularly good. There are Gardai patrolling throughout the day, and more in the evening and night to make sure people behave themselves. All in all a good experience, which we all enjoyed. Will be back next year.

We planned part of our trip around Puck Fair in Killorglin. l --- sort of like a street flea market. I wouldn't go again but I'm glad I saw it. However I do want to say they treat the goat really well and its harmless so people should get off their backs about animal rights. The Churros near the children's ride area were delicious and they tasted just as good as the ones I had in Mexico....thats how good they are. So the Food at the fair is fine ...

I have been to this for the past 3 years and i LOVE it. Such a great atmosphere around. All the entertainment is free and goes on for hours. It's suitable for all the family. Loads of stalls too selling toys,makeup, books etc etc. Definitely worth a visit.
