Celebrating Irish craft and design with nationwide events

Focusing on why design matters and how it drives the Irish economy

Convened by Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCI), Irish Design Week focuses on why design matters and highlights issues around sustainability, diversity and inclusion.

A wide range of workshops, exhibitions, talks and conferences take place throughout Ireland over the course of the week.
