    Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival

    This festival takes place in the town of Lisdoonvarna.

    This festival was originally celebrated at harvest time event, in which couples were matched because there were few opportunities for villagers to travel and meet other people.

    Today it is a fun and festive occasion that takes place during the entire month of September and the first week of October, a period that still coincides with the annual harvest.

    People gather in dance halls and pubs to sing, dance and listen to music. They also keep an eye open for potential partners.
