As always, it’s a great opportunity to meet fellow Porsche Club members from around the country all while viewing some of the best Porsche cars in the country. This takes place in the magnificent garden surroundings of the Radisson Blu, St Helen’s. Porsche Centre Dublin will be present again with a selection of their latest models for you to view and enjoy! There’ll be plenty of activities planned for the day; believe it or not some will actually involve cars! 

Others include a Magician, a special kids’ activity room, ice cream van (for young and old), outdoor music and many other activities. We have two Concours competitions so if you are planning on entering see details below and get your entry in without delay.
The hotel will again provide top quality food with a selection to suit everyone and which really represents superb value and even more so if you book and pay in advance. As is the tradition the club will have a prize draw for a charity and this year it’s for Pieta House which is a very deserving cause. Prizes are donated by PCI members and sponsors and we’d love to hear from you if you can donate a prize for the draw, thanks in advance for doing so.  :)
