Armagh County Show is one of the longest-running Shows in Ireland with a report of a Show being held in the City of Armagh as far back as 1829.



The agriculture, local food and rural life elements of our show continue to be the driving force behind our organisation.  However, we make every effort is made to cater for all tastes and interests of the thousands of visitors that attend the event each year and the programme is constantly updated to reflect and respond to those interests.  

A brief list of the main attractions at the Armagh Show are as follows:

  • Livestock Classes
  • Equestrian Events
  • Home Industries
  • Food Village
  • Vintage Displays
  • Trade Stands
  • Other attractions.

A new format to the Armagh Show has proved a great success.
