The Gathering 2013

The Gathering Ireland is not one single event. It’s an exciting year-long celebration of Ireland, its people and all that is great about its connections, both at home and abroad. The Gathering Ireland invites anyone who has a link to Ireland or just a love of the country, to come to Ireland for a series of events throughout 2013.

The Gathering Ireland was launched by the Irish Taoiseach, Tánaiste and Minister for Tourism in May 2012 and is being supported by Fáilte Ireland and Tourism Ireland. It promises to be the biggest tourism initiative ever staged in Ireland.

Ireland has had its share of doom and gloom the last couple of years. The Gathering is an opportunity to do something positive for our country and help stimulate local industries. More importantly, it’s an excuse to host parties, festivals and celebrations!

It is happening right now and all throughout 2013. Check out the calendar of events on to see what’s on.
