Munster Agricultural Society has launched its most ambitious show schedule for the much-loved Cork Summer Show 2019.

Taking place at the Curraheen Showgrounds on Saturday and Sunday, 15th and 16th June, the largest agricultural show in Munster promises to top the summer events schedule for Cork this year.

With helicopter rides, live music from the Frank & Walters and others, the largest food market in Munster, craft beer tents, stick-making courses, vintage vehicles and the latest motors, dog shows, pet farms, gardening, crafts and baking competitions, fashion shows and lots of family friendly entertainment, the showgrounds will be bursting with fun and games this summer.

Speaking at the launch of Cork Summer Show 2019, Munster Agricultural Society Chairman Robert Harkin said, “Every summer for more than 200 years, Munster Agricultural Society has put on a very special show in Cork. It’s a family tradition that brings together the very best about Ireland in one place.

“With great food, fun, farming and music, the Cork Summer Show embraces our heritage, whilst adapting to attract more people each year to experience the magic of this special agricultural show. This year the line-up is better than ever, with new additions such as stick making, drone racing and for the first time, helicopter rides. This show will be the highlight of the summer in Cork.”


As children go free, the Cork Summer Show represents great value for all the family to enjoy a special day in the countryside, only a few miles from Cork city.

Show favourites will be there alongside vintage tractors and high-tech farm machinery, the latest in cars and motors as well as free children’s play zones with everything from bouncy castles to pet farms where you can stroke a lama or hold a baby bunny.

With more than 100 food stalls, the Summer Show is a great place to try out new flavours and experience farm to fork cuisine on site.

As sponsors of the Cork Summer Show, Cork County Council will also have a significant presence at the Show again this year.

An ideal way to spend an Irish summer days outdoors with family and friends, with ample free parking available and free bus routes to and from the city.
