National Geographic opens its first Irish store somewhere very fitting
It’s bound to provide much travel inspiration.

IF YOU’RE IN Dublin Airport’s Terminal 1 soon, you might be tempted to change your flight.

That’s because National Geographic – publisher of the glossy yellow magazine that features wonderful sights and intriguing stories from around the globe – opened its first Irish store in the airport this week.

It’s located in The Loop, the shopping area of the terminal.

As well as National Geographic’s award-winning books and magazines, the store sells  stationery, maps, globes, luggage, clothing, accessories and children’s products – handy if you need to pick up a few pressies.

The new Dublin Airport store is National Geographic’s second airport outlet in Europe, following its opening in Rome Airport last year.

National Geographic is one of the largest non-profit scientific and educational institutions in the world, and was founded in 1888.

It focuses not just on geography, archaeology and natural science, but also promotes environmental and historical conservation.
