Looking For Love? Find it in Ireland!

The Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival is Europe's largest singles event, and you are bound to meet your true love there, or ask Ireland's only remaining true matchmaker, Willie Daly, to find the perfect partner for you.

For the entire month of September every year (for 150 years!, the music starts up at noon and continues into the wee hours. Join in with couples dancing, set dancing exhibitions, and sit back and sing along to pub music. The little town of Lisdoonvarna, in western Ireland, swells to several times its size. 

The festival isn't just for the Irish--It draws singles from all over the world. All ages and nationalities attend, and they'll even queue up at the Matchmaker Pub (Willie Daly's office) for help in seeking a mate. Even those who are married or not looking for a partner attend to enjoy the revelry. 

There's still time for you to reserve your flight and accommodations! Dates are August 29th-October 5th. Check the schedule to decide which days interest you. The official Matchmaking Festival website also includes accommodations links. Or simply phone +353 65 7074005 for more information. 

And if you found love at the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival, tell us all about it here. I love a good love story.
