Large car shows / events in Ireland. 8 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 327
Right guys after the great (sun burn) day yesterday, I think it would be an idea to look into what the biggest shows are north and south in our little island.

I am not fully into the car show scene in Ireland and would welcome all suggestions, then maybe we could shortlist the events we want to attend based on location / time of year etc.

I think the first should be:

1. Irish Classic & Vintage Motor Show (1400 Cars, 1 day)
2.
3.
4.

Feel free to add onto the list from all parts of the country, with figures like total show car attendance, duration, etc.

I was going to let this thread run for about three weeks, then review where we all stand. Then propose 3-4 shows as a short list for onward and open discussion to narrow it down to maybe two per year fixed events to go to.

What do you all think?

I think that's a great idea Ray. I am not fully up on all the shows either, but we are lucky in so far as we can be classed as both Classic (modern day anyway) and sports, modified etc, so can kind of fit in anywhere.

It would be nice to attend a couple of shows a year as a group and display our machines.

How about Phoenix park show? involves driving the cars round the circuit too!(that may just be for specific groups im not too sure but afaik all groups went out) Was there last year around the circuit and its great craic, all volunteer marshalls ect. small venue, typically racers and modern/ exotic cars perfect for 2's Only

Downside is your car may be stuck there for the weekend so people travelling may be put off

Sounds brilliant, but most of us use our 2's as daily drivers, so if they have to be left there for the weekend, that would be a problem.
