"Beware single ladies!" Lisdoonvarna Warnings Or Dangers Tip by clunker

Lisdoonvarna Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Though not dangerous in any way, just know that single ladies visiting during the Matchmaking Festival will be hit upon, or "chatted up". I visited with my then-girfriend, now-wife, and her mother a few years back. Any time she wasn't in arms length, there was another bloke coming over to talk to her. Even her mom had a few would be suitors. The funniest thing was that I was walking a few feet in front of them, and THREE TIMES cars pulled over to ask them if they wanted to go for a drink! We went over to a local dance hall to see what was going on there, and within two minutes my lady was whisked off onto the dance floor by an older local. We were only there for about 2 hours or so, but it was quite an experience. If being hit on by middle-aged lonely bachelors is what your looking for, the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival is the place for you!
