Gifted at the RDS

Formerly known as the National Crafts and Design Fair, the annual event returns to the RDS as Gifted. Hundreds of makers, designers and artisan food producers have landed in Ballsbridge and will be showcasing their amazing work in the RDS Main Hall, from Wednesday 5th until Sunday the 9th of December. The exhibition is a celebration of some of the best designers and makers in Ireland, from fashion to jewellery and beyond.

The fair gives visitors the opportunity to view thousands of hand-crafted, unique gifts you won’t find anywhere else. With over 600 stands, there is something for everyone with products ranging from chocolates to high fashion, handmade goods and crafts, ceramics and glass, skincare, art and photography, children’s gifts, and presents inspired by nature.
