Carlow Antiques, Vintage & Collectables

The Carlow Antiques & Vintage Fair finally returns to the Woodford Dolmen Hotel, Carlow!

The perfect place to pick up unusual gifts and search out inspiration ahead of the festive season, the fair will include thousands of items, from antique and vintage jewellery, silver and porcelain to rare books, quirky curios and countless items for the home, alongside vintage fashion and accessories. Admission to the event is €3.50 or just €2.50 with the discount available via our SMS text alert (text ADD + your name to 085-8629007 to opt-in) or when you present the Vintage Ireland Android app on your smartphone/tablet.

HOW TO GET THERE: From Carlow town, the Woodford Dolmen Hotel is just 6 minutes’ drive along the Kilkenny Rd/R448, or just 20 minutes from nearby Tullow, and provides ample free parking.

Just 25-minutes’ drive from Kilkenny City, the hotel is accessible via the N10/M9, exiting at junction 6 and continuing along the R448 until the hotel appears on your left.

THE WOODFORD DOLMEN HOTEL is comfortably nestled on the banks of the River Barrow, and enjoys 10 scenic acres of luscious green surroundings, not to mention the Chef’s own thriving herb gardens. A range of dining options are available, from the Plum Tree Bistro with traditional Irish and international cuisine, to the cosy atmosphere of the Dolmen Bar, all overseen by Executive Chef Laurence Richards. Sunday carvery lunch is served from 12:15pm to 4:00pm (and happens to be enthusiastically recommended by our own team!).

Along with an extensive wine list in both Bar & Bistro, the hotel supports local distilleries and craft breweries, while the Dolmen Bar’s own resident mixologist has created a cocktail menu of both new and classic cocktails. Recently refurbished and truly welcoming, the Woodford Dolmen Hotel is very much a place to relax and enjoy after a day of browsing at the fair and somewhere you will certainly want to “make a day of it”.
