"Grattan Square" Dungarvan Things to Do Tip by pure1942

Dungarvan Things to Do: 18 reviews and 53 photos


Grattan Square is the traditional heart of Dungarvan and is still a busy central point to the town. The square hasn't changed much in the last century and although the shopfronts have changed a little, the square looks pretty much the same as it has done for over 100 years. the only real difference is the presence of cars over horse drawn carriage! However, the down side to this modern development is that the centre of thes square is now promarily used for car-parking! It is on Thursdays that the square reverts to traditional life with the morning farmers market selling fresh food produce. The culmination of this market atmosphere is during the Dungarvan Festival of Food which has grown in stature over the past few years and now has a reputation as one of the best festivals of its kind in Ireland. the festival usually happens around Easter.
