It’s that time of year again when we beekeepers prepare our entries for the Dublin Honey Show. It’s the highlight of the beekeeping year, and we Dublin beekeepers welcome visitors from everywhere to participate in our show.
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 at 11:00 am and 13:00
- Teas, coffees, sandwiches and delicious cake
If you are keen on buying honey, do come early because we always sell out.
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 http://dublinbees.org/entryform, or download an entry form here.
Finally, if you are a member of the Co. Dublin beekeepers’ association and can spare a few hours to help out on the day, we’d love to have you. If you can help out, click here to email John.
