Design Ireland Store Opens at Dublin Airport


The Loop at Dublin Airport is opening a new store to showcase the best of Ireland’s design and crafts to consumers travelling all over the world.

If you’re travelling through Terminal 2 this Christmas, you’ll have the opportunity to see the gorgeous new Design Ireland store where you can pick up presents before you fly. 

The new Design Ireland store at Terminal 2 features a specially selected collection of work by 24 Irish design and craft brands, showcasing the best of Irish creativity to passengers from all over the world. It features a range of beautifully crafted products designed and made in Ireland across categories such as jewellery, ceramics, gifts, wellness, accessories and clothing.

Design Ireland, presented by Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCI) features more than 190 individual brands selected by an independent jury for their high standards of both design and manufacture. 24 of these brands have been chosen by The Loop to feature in the new store.

The new store in T2 features products from 24 designers based across the country. The range includes jewellery designers Chupi from Dublin, ENIBAS from Cork and Martina Hamilton from Sligo, and fashion items from Hanna Hats of Donegal, Emblem Weavers in Wexford, and Mourne Textiles in Co Down.

Other products featured in the store include candles made from all-natural ingredients from the world’s oldest candle company Rathbornes Candles, which was established in Dublin in 1488, skincare and wellness products from Modern Botany, which is based in Schull in Cork and textile artist Martina Scott from Louth with her unique limited-edition Irish linen prints.

The Design Ireland programme provides support to some of the best Irish designers and makers, helping them to enhance their capabilities and opening-up commercial opportunities to help them grow sales and employment.  

Dublin Airport has collaborated with DCCI many times previously to deliver exciting Irish design and craft presentations at the airport; a design and craft exhibition in 2014 and a large-scale photographic exhibition celebrating the breadth of Irish creativity across the airport as part of Irish Design 2015.

Dublin Airport has welcomed almost 28.4 million passengers in the first ten months of the year, a 5% increase over the same period in 2018. Almost 1.4 million extra passengers have travelled through the airport between January and October. Dublin Airport has flights to 190 destinations in 42 countries operated by 50 airlines.
