It's that time again.


The Bray Air Show 2022 is officially on this weekend, ideal if you've been looking for some Saturday or Sunday plans. There will be a practice run of the display happening on the 23rd, before the real deal on the 24th. The Bray Air Show is a fantastic family friendly event "with some of the biggest names in the aviation world lined up to impress with their aerial acrobatics." If you're looking to get all the information ahead of the weekend, we've got you covered.


That's an easy one. As the name would suggest, the Bray Air Show 2022 is, in fact, in Bray.



The festival kicks off with ground entertainment on the 23rd July, with the actual air show display taking place on the 24th July.

What time?

Events and entertainment kick off at 12pm both days.


This is a free event, therefore you don't need a ticket to attend. However be aware that all food and entertainment vendors will be individually priced.


Events and Activities

The Bray Seafront Fair, as well as the food and craft village will both open from 12pm. Perhaps what's most exciting, beyond watching the actual air display of course, are the Helicopter Pleasure Rides that will take place on both days. You can avail of one of these flights between 11am and 7pm on either Saturday or Sunday. Adults will pay €50 for a ticket, while it's €35 for children. You can book HERE.


For people driving to the event, there is a key change you should be aware of. Motorists will need to prebook their car parking for the Bray Air Show, if they're hoping to park within one of the official carparks for the event. You can read more about this HERE.


If you aren't driving, there will be additional DART services running over the weekend to accommodate people travelling.
