About The Enniskerry Victorian Field Day
The Enniskerry Victorian Field Day Festival has been held annually in September at Knocklinn Farm, on the Ballyman road minutes from Bray and Enniskerry and only 30 minutes from Dublin! Gates are open from 11am – 5pm!
This family farm has been run by the Heatley family since 1914 and is an idyllic setting for a Victorian themed festival with the Sugarloaf Mountain providing an amazing backdrop and the views of the coastline sparkling in the distance are stunning.
The Festival attracts over 4,000 people each year. The 2016 Enniskerry Victorian Field Day takes place on Sunday 11th September. Come along in Victorian costume; it adds to the spirit of the day and you will be in with a chance to win magnificent prizes in our ‘Best Dressed’ Competition .
Our fantastic programme of events guarantees you a day out like no other! There are wide arrays of activities that will appeal to all ages and keep you entertained for an entire day!

Other Entertainment highlights include puppetry; pony rides; Dog shows ; Horseshoe throwing; Nail Driving; Archery; Falconry; Kids games and carousels and a variety of exciting competitions.
The Festival is organised entirely by dedicated volunteers and the local parishes of Enniskerry. Each year the proceeds of the day are divided between the joint parishes and a national charity organisation. We have chosen to work with the amazing Lakers for 2016. Lakers is a sport and recreational club for children and adults with an intellectual disability. The club provides a wide range of sporting, educational and essential support services to members across Leinster. They have been in operation since 1989 and currently have 400 members supported by 130 volunteers and staff.
‘In Lakers we passionately believe that each member is unique, has their own abilities and is entitled to the opportunity for a better future.’ www.Lakers.ie
