The Outing Festival

The worlds only LGBTQ+ Music and Matchmaking festival

The Outing Festival in Ireland is the World's Only LGBT+ Matchmaking, Music & Arts Festival.


Hosted by Drag Ringmaster Paul Ryder & Festival Director Eddie McGuinness, the Outing Festival is the glittery LGBT sister event of the 160-year-old Lisdoonvarna matchmaking festival, there’s no technology, just good old-fashioned parties in the unlikely setting of rural County Clare. Now in its seventh year, a new twist on old traditions. The Outing Festival is on the move from the ‘village of love’ Lisdoonvarna after six years, as they share the love and move to the grounds of Dromoland Castle & take over The Inn at Dromoland, Co. Clare in the West of Ireland.
