Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places

Posted on 03/04/2019

If you find yourself alone this Valentines Day, there may be a solution that only the Irish can provide. For those of you that remember the famous John Wayne movie, The Quiet Man, The Matchmaker played a pivotal role in that successful love story.

Rest assured Lonely Hearts, the art is still alive and thriving today.

Once a year, The Lissdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival takes place in lovely Lissdoonvarna, County Clare, Ireland throughout the month of September. This year the event runs from August 31 through September 30, 2018.

The festival provides a great opportunity for people to meet, get to know each other, participate in speed dating, dances, and of course the world famous “sessions” in the pubs. From 18 to 80, all are welcome!

Perhaps Willie Daly, Lissdoonvarna’s resident expert Matchmaker can seal the deal for you. Willie has carried on the family tradition, with over 3000 marriages to his credit.

So if online app’s, blind dates, or lousy recommendations from friends haven’t been working out, now is the time to start planning your trip to Lissdoonvarna, where love and Irish hospitality are always in the air.
