If you are travelling through T2 in Dublin airport this Christmas check out the unique Irish jewellery exhibition featuring 16 of Ireland’s top jewellery designer-makers. The exhibition is open to visitors at Terminal 2 (T2) at Dublin Airport from Monday 14 November, showcasing the best of Irish jewellery design to the hundreds of thousands of holiday travellers passing through the busy hub between now and the new year.
The exhibition, featuring 16 of Ireland’s top jewellery designer-makers, will reflect the diversity of contemporary Irish design.
