We will be back in Ireland in about a month and wanted to catch an evening at the matchmaking festival since we missed it on our last trip. Can someone tell me about the crowds? Is there ample parking? Also, should we buy advance tickets for the music venue? We are just there one night but it is Saturday so is it reasonable to think we can get them at the door.

Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival
Throughout the month of September, the spa town of Lisdoonvarna close to the Burren in Co. Clare, celebrates the world famous Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival with music and lots of fun. The small spa town of Lisdoonvarna , with a population of around people, has attracted visitors from all over Ireland to its mineral springs, since the 18th century. A long held traditional in this central town on the southern edges of the scenic Burren area, is the matchmaking festival.
Situated in the heart of the Burren region about twenty miles north west of Ennis is the popular tourist town of Lisdoonvarna. Coming from the Irish "Lios Dhuin Bharna" meaning the lios or enclosure of the fort in the gap, there is plenty of archaeological interest surrounding Lisdoonvarna with many ring forts dating back to the Iron Age and Christian era to be found in the area. However, Lisdoonvarna is best known for its Spa Centre and its festivals. Lisdoonvarna developed into a tourist centre as early as the mid 18th century when a top Limerick surgeon discovered the beneficial effects of its mineral waters.
