Chicago Tribune reports on Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival
“Once a tranquil backwater a few miles off the rugged Atlantic coast, Lisdoonvarna landed on the map thanks to its mineral springs, which drew visitors seeking the curative powers of these sulfur- and iron-rich waters. Lisdoon — as it’s known locally — sprouted up from the karst limestone landscape in County Clare to become one of Ireland’s earliest tourism hot spots.”
Europe’s biggest singles festival kicks off on 1st September this year and for a whole month, the small village of Lisdoonvarna comes alive with the sound of music and dancing. Bars and pubs and a marquee in the village will host some of Ireland’s top music entertainers, including Nathan Carter, Mike Denver, Derek Ryan and Lisa McHugh – Check out the Line Up for more information.
