Agricultural and horticultural show which attracts up to two thousand visitors. An ideal family day out with a wide range of competitions and exhibits.

Oughterard Agricultural & Horticultural Show is one of the leading Shows held in the West of Ireland. It provides an ideal opportunity for both locals and visitors to see the best of Connemara with performance ponies, livestock, pets, dogs, farm and garden produce and vintage displays as well as a vast variety of art and craft exhibits. Entertainment is provided for children on both days.

Over the years, the show has grown in popularity and now attracts entrants from Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Finals of two major competitions take place on the Sunday: the Powers Quarry International Ridden Performance for Connemara Ponies; and The Western Regional Irish Draught Foal Championship.
