STAMPA, the Irish National Stamp Exhibition, will celebrate its 47th anniversary in 2019 with a return to the venue at Griffith College, Dublin. This will be the fourth exhibition at the new venue. This historic location, a former army barracks, is named after Arthur Griffith and has a modern well lit auditorium with on-site catering facilities, wi-fi and free parking.
STAMPA 2019 will be held from 11th to 13th October and Stampa 2020 from 9th to 11th October.
Opening Hours: 11am to 5pm (4pm Sunday). Admission Free. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
You are invited to participate in STAMPA 2019 which will feature stamp exhibits, national and international dealers and An Post. There will also be a special display from the archives of An Post and a special exhibit from the Revenue Museum. A set of philatelic souvenirs will be available exclusively to STAMPA members and, in addition, there will be a public souvenir for sale at the show. These special souvenirs are not available from An Post. A set of three illustrated and postmarked covers will also be available at the exhibition or by post from STAMPA. The postmarks will be provided by An Post with a different one for each day of the show.
Further details will be included in the ‘Souvenir Page’ on this website from July 2019.
A major feature of STAMPA has always been the competition entries and displays. There are several classes which exhibitors can choose from, whether novice or advanced. See the Awards and Entry Form pages for details. Since 2017, we have added a new PICTURE POSTCARD class.
