Brittas Bay airfield (ICAO: EIBB) was an airfield 55km south of Dublin.
I could not trace the airfields origin. The aerodrome was available only for operations by the Brittas Bay Aero Club and selected invitees. Operations to and from the airfield were strictly PPR.
The airfield closed around 2000 and was still faintly recognisable in 2009, but has since completely disappeared. The lands were listed for sale by auction in the Irish paper Independent in October 2017, with an asking price of € 1.3mil
