Ireland’s Expo 2020 pavilion design has been revealed

We’re drawing closer to the hugely-anticipated Expo 2020 Dubai, and we’re now starting to see it all come together with the reveal of Ireland’s pavilion.

During Expo 2020, the permanent exhibition will host a six-month programme of culture, sports, business and other activities – all themed around the ‘Island of Inspiration’.

Ireland’s pavilion will re-create the Newgrange lightbox and will be a fusion of Western and Eastern architecture.

The new structure will showcase Irish history, science, technology, business, and culture, across different sections, including The Irish Fantastic, The Irish Scientific, Irish World Changers and Trailblazers, and Global Ireland.

“Ireland’s story is an inspirational one and Expo 2020 is an opportunity to tell that story to a large, truly global audience,” said the ambassador of Ireland to the UAE H.E. Aidan Cronin.

“Ireland’s pavilion will be an enjoyable, inspirational and visually stunning place to visit, with permanent exhibitions, artistic performances, seminars, showcases and a daily ‘Be Inspired’ programme.”

Cronin added: “Expo 2020 offers us an unparalleled opportunity to raise Ireland’s cultural profile in the UAE and in the wider region and we are determined that this will be one of the tangible legacies of our involvement in Expo 2020.”

Expo 2020 Dubai also revealed its Emirati-designed pavilion known as ‘The Good Place’, inspired by the traditional Bedouin tent. Check it out right here.

It’s also showcased 14 homegrown restaurants and cafés that visitors will be able to dine at. Find out where you’ll be eating right here.
