Matchmaking event ireland






This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

Matchmaking is one of Ireland’s oldest traditions and, for the last couple of hundred years, a good deal of it has taken place in Lisdoonvarna during September and early October.

Rugged nature and the timeless ocean meet on the county's coast. The Burren, an ancient region of tortured stone and alien vistas, stretches down to the coast and right out to the Aran Islands. Clare's soul is steeped in traditional Irish culture and music flourish here. And it's not just a show for tourists, either. In little villages like Miltown Malbay, Ennistymon, Doolin and Kilfenora you'll find pubs with year-round sessions of trad music.
