Find your ideal home

Fancy a free ticket to the Ideal Home Show running from October 28th-31st at the RDS? Simply register online at and you’ll be emailed a free admission ticket for two people for any day of the show. Normal ticket prices are €15 (adults), €8 (students/OAPs), with free entry for kids under 12. The offer ends September 12th.

This year’s show will include the Permanent TSB advice centre, an architectural advice clinic providing one-to-one consultations, The Irish Times Home & Design Theatre (featuring talks on interior design and décor, colour choices, lighting and more), the Extend & Renovate Village and much more.

“When it comes to mortgages lots of people can be put off by what they think is a hugely complicated process. However, in reality, it’s not as daunting as it may seem. Our dedicated advisors are not only available to provide free and confidential advice on general banking but can also give customers a greater insight into the mortgage process and how it works, hopefully making the process easier for people,” said Richard Kelly, Head of Mortgages at PTSB, speaking about what they will be offering at the show.
