Free entry for all to the Athlone Antique Fair, Hodson Bay Hotel

Do you love watching watching the Antiques Roadshow, Cash in the Attic, Antiques Road Trip or Deal or No Deal? Then you would be mad to miss the Athlone Antiques, Art and Vintage Fair Hodson Bay Hotel, near Athlone, on Sunday, November 22, from 11 am to 6 pm.

  Hibernian Antique Fairs are very proud and delighted to invite all of our midland customers, free of charge, to one of Ireland’s biggest antiques, art and vintage fairs, to celebrate our 25th year in business.

  It is far bigger than other fair held anywhere in the area over the last few years. Try to imagine 30 antique shops, art galleries, vintage shops, all in one place together – then you start to get the picture.

  Many of the dealers in attendance are members of the Irish Antique Dealers’ Association.

  What is an antique fair? This antique fair is a gathering of over 30 antique dealers from all over Ireland, selling their wares to the public for just one day.

  You can expect to see in excess of 200,000 items.

  As long as it is old and collectable, then it will be here – 18th/19th century furniture, Irish and Victorian art, Irish contemporary art, jewellery, vintage and accessories, rare and collectable books, China and porcelain, coins and bank notes (both buying and selling).
