Design Island, an exhibition by some of the country’s finest designers and craft-makers, is returning to Galway City this weekend.

Thirteen designers and makers from Galway and across Ireland are taking part in this year’s showcase.

Mayor of Galway City, Mike Cubbard, will officially open the event this Sunday, at 6pm, in Tribeton on Merchants Road.

The fifth Design Ireland showcase will run daily until Sunday, July 28, at Tribeton from noon to 8pm and admission is free.

Design Island is a network of creative people who join forces to promote their work by exhibiting in Ireland and abroad.

This year’s Galway show will include furniture, lighting, resin, metal sculpture, glass, ceramics and woodturning.

All the work is designed and made in Ireland to the highest standard.

Participants from Galway, Meath, Wicklow, Clare, Laois, Offaly, Dublin and Cork will exhibit their work in Tribeton. In addition to established makers, Irish Design have invited a recent graduate from the Letterfrack Furniture College.
