The Holiday World Show Dublin, taking place at the RDS Simmonscourt this weekend from Jan 27-29 is the only show where you can meet over 1,000 travel professionals from 50 countries face to face to plan your dream holiday and take advantage of show-only specials and deals, special prizes and hundreds of free competitions.

The holiday scene has been revolutionised over the past two years with new emphasis on safety and sustainability and new opportunities and a more diverse choice of holiday offerings. 

For three days the Holiday World Show will transform the RDS Simmonscourt into a holiday world, where you can sample what destinations have to offer from the Americas to Asia, Africa to Europe and Ireland. The Holiday World Show 2023 offers opportunities to connect directly with the largest number of travel experts assembled in one room since before the pandemic. Wander and wonder. 

Pat Dawson, CEO of the Irish Travel Agents Association, stated: “Holiday World Show has become a powerful institution for the Irish public and has been missed by many these past three years. It is great to have it back, positively affecting the Irish travel industry and supporting travel agents once more.”
