This year we hold our honey show on Saturday 4th November, from 10:30am till 4pm at Christ Church, Rathgar.  There you will find:

  • The best Dublin honey for sale
  • A competition for the best honey / mead / candles / photographs etc. If you are a beekeeper, come and enter your produce – and try win a prize!  If not, come and marvel at the beautiful exhibits.
  • A craft fair
  • Beekeeping-related lectures and videos at 11:00 am and 13:00 pm
  • Teas, coffees, sandwiches and delicious cake

If you are keen on buying honey, do come early because we always sell out.

This year our judges are: Michael Mac Giolla Coda, Redmond Williams, Jim Fletcher and Paul Boyle.

Assisting stewards are: Eleanor Attridge, Mary Wall, Ita O’Reilly and Bernie O’Reilly

If you are entering the competition, you will need the schedule of classes and the rules.  You can download them here and here.  You can enter online using the form at, or download an entry form here.
