It is possible, even probable, that the dates and location for this event may change, so please check the website for details if you are making plans far in advance.

There can be few sites as spectacular as graceful hot air balloons quitely floating past the clouds, and when you add a location like Waterford, which has become of late something of a festival specialist, you have the perfect backdrop.

The Irish championships is the longest running National ballooning event in the world and is an event not just for balloon enthusiasts, but for everyone – and perhaps especially for photographers.

Date and details for 2019 subject to confirmation.
