September 1st to October 1st 2006

The MatchMaking Festival starts on Friday September 1st and finishes on Sunday October 1st, 2006. It is mainly concentrated at the weekends but there is also music and dancing during the week.

The music kicks off at 6pm on Friday evening in all venues around the town and continues until 4am Saturday morning. After a few hours sleep and a good hearty breakfast music commences again at the Spa Wells and all the other venues at 10am and again goes around the clock until 4am on Sunday morning. If you are still fit for more, Sunday’s music starts again at 10am until the small hours of Monday morning.
The Spa Wells is traditionally famous for having your 1st dance of the day followed by a glass of spa water. This session is on daily from 
12 midday to 2.30pm.
Afternoon dancing commences in O’Donoghues Pub from 4pm until 7pm on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
The main dancing venues in Lisdoonvarna with the above entertainment are as follows:

1. Hydro Hotel
2. Imperial Hotel
3. Rathbaun Hotel
4. Royal Spa Hotel
5. The Ritz
6. Irish Arms
7. The Ravine Hotel

The QDanceClub  is located at the Hydro Hotel and dancing starts there every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night at 10.30pm.
The Festival commences with music and craic in all venues. 

The Lisdoonvarna Race Meeting takes place with Horse- and Sulki-Racing. This is a three day flapping meeting (which is an amateur race meeting) run under the rules of the Horse & Pony Association. Some of the top international jockeys began their careers at these meetings. There are six races daily with prize money of up to Euro 1,500 per race. Entries are taken from all around the country and many bookmakers attend. Stabling for all animals is available free and accommodation can be arranged locally. 
All in all, a most exciting and colourful event not to be missed.

The latest craze of this festival among singletons is the Speed Dating Weekend! Looking for an alternative to the nightclub scene? Want the possibility to meet 50 dates for 3 minutes? Here are the details: register Friday 4 – 6pm, special ‘get to know you’ event on Friday. Speed dating event starts Saturday evening. Speak to your speed date for 3 minutes, bell rings, move on to your next speed date and start again. Men rotate, ladies remain seated. End of the event, enjoy a nights dancing while the organisers tabulate yes matches. Next day get your list of successful dates and the fun has just begun. One mighty weekend, lots of guys, lots of girls, one great time!

During the third, fourth and fifth weekends of the Festival there is Matchmaking with Willie Daly. There is also Music and Dancing in all venues around Lisdoonvarna, music starts at 10am and continues until 4am the following morning. The craic is mighty in Lisdoonvarna – come and meet your ‘perfect match’.

The grand final of the Matchmaking Festival is always the  ‘Mr. Lisdoonvarna’ and the ‘Queen of the Burren’ competition when the most eligible lady & gentleman of the Festival are picked and awarded the coveted titles. The competition is held at the Hydro Hotel. This is always the Best Weekend of the Year!

What makes the matchmaking festival so appealing to many people is the friendly relaxed atmosphere and the fact that various age groups mingle freely and happily together.
