#BrayAirDisplay Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th, July 2018
Organisers of Ireland’s biggest air festival, the Bray Air Display*, supported by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA), have revealed a spectacular line up for this summer’s event. Headlined by none other than the Red Arrows, spectators are promised a weekend of thrilling, ‘have-to-be-see-to-be-believed’ aerobatic performances. Bray Air Display forms part of the IAA’s #AviationIreland weekend that includes Foynes Air Show in Co. Limerick on Saturday 28th July.
Peter Kearney, Chief Executive Designate of the Irish Aviation Authority said,“The IAA has a long history of supporting aviation activities that help promote the aviation industry so we are very happy to support the #AviationIreland weekend.”

Sé Pardy, Director, Bray Air Display, said, “It is full steam ahead as we organise the 13th annual Bray Air Display and it’s going to be a thrilling spectacle with a line-up of more than 40 aircraft. The calibre of the aerobatic displays at Bray is really second to none and, I believe, inspirational for those considering a career in aviation. Everyone is welcome to enjoy what will be a wonderful free event for young and old alike. See you all in Bray this July!”
Activities will kick off from noon each day with a fun-fair, live music, food and craft markets. Spectators can experience a breath-taking helicopter ride over Bray Head, hike the exhilarating Cliff Walk, or enjoy a sedate stroll along Bray’s magnificent Victorian prom before the air display begins.
While Bray Air Display is a free family weekend, hospitality packages are available which offer excellent food, drink and stunning panoramic views of the Bray Air Display flight path from the comfort of a grandstand located on the strand. There is an early bird offer available now for a limited time. See brayairdisplay.com/hospitality/ for more information.
Bray Air Display organisers are working in conjunction with An Garda Síochána, Wicklow County Council and respective agencies to implement a comprehensive traffic management plan for the duration of the event. Spectators are encouraged to plan their visit in advance, take public transport and arrive early.
Bray Air Display was recognised as ‘Best Festival / Event Experience over 50,000 people’ at the prestigious, national Irish Tourism Industry Awards 2017 and in 2018 it won silver in the ‘Best Tourism Initiative’ category at the All-Ireland Community and Council Awards.
