Bray Air Display

The Bray Air Show returns to Bray this weekend the 27th and 28th of July with some of the best display teams and vintage aircraft in the world as they showcase their incredible aerobatic skills. The Show first took place back in 2005 and has gone from strength to strength ever since. With 140,000 spectators expected to attend over the two days we wish to advise customers looking to attend that:

  • Extra DARTs and capacity will operate
  • Family Day ticket offer available
  • Beat the crowds, travel early, use Leapcard or buy return or day tickets
  • Bikes will not be permitted on DART or Commuter services over these two dates

The Bray Air Display is so much more than an air show! Why not enjoy the thrills and spills of the Seafront Funfair, dine alfresco at our Food Village, treat yourself and the family to a meal at one of the many restaurants throughout the town or simply bring your own picnic. You can even experience a breath-taking helicopter ride over Bray Head which all kick off from noon each day.
