If you’re thinking about building, renovating, extending or upgrading your property, you need to visit BUILD this weekend.

BUILD is the northwest’s most popular home expo event and takes place in Lurgybrack Open Farm, Letterkenny this Saturday 6th April, from 10am – 5pm and this Sunday 7th April from 11am – 4pm.


Entry is free and this year promises to be the biggest show to date with 33 exhibitors from across all sectors of the house building and renovation process.

For the past four years, the BUILD management team has worked together to showcase some of Donegal’s finest tradespeople and services. A key focus of the event is to highlight the breadth and quality of services available in Donegal and to encourage home-builders to keep business local.

Donegal has a wealth of experience and expertise in the construction sector and the idea behind BUILD was to bring all the leading industry experts together under one roof so developers, self-builders and fixer-uppers can access essential free information from leading experts and get the advice they need to make the right decisions for their build or renovation project. BUILD has grown from strength-to-strength and the event has established itself as one of the largest and most respected construction events in the northwest.

The exhibitors will cover a range of sectors from planning experts and architects to legal advisors and flooring experts, as well as garden landscaping experts and suppliers who can talk you through energy efficient products, which can save thousands of euro in the long run. Even if you’re not building this year, you can learn a lot that will help you with a future build.

BUILD is proudly supported by its main sponsor, AIB who has been backing the event since 2017. AIB’s lowest variable rate mortgage is the most competitive in the market and ensures a fair mortgage rate for its customers. Their mortgage approval also lasts twelve months, which is a big bonus. The AIB mortgage experts will be on hand at BUILD 19 this weekend to speak with anyone building, renovating or improving their homes.


Entry to BUILD 19 is free of charge and there will be prizes and giveaways on the day. Facilities include ample car-parking, a heated building and an on-site café. For more information visit Build 19 on Facebook or email builddonegal@gmail.com
