ENTERTAINMENT in Ireland and Northern Ireland

Name it and it's happening!

Be it cinema, clubbing, concerts, gallery, museum and other exhibitions, theatre or organised amateur or professional sport, opportunities abound for entertainment fun in Ireland and Northern Ireland. And then there are the many opportunities for enjoying the outdoors: fishing, golf and hiking to name just three.

A steady stream of Canadian talent contributes to these offerings. Examples include concert and club performances by well-known Canadian musicians, readings by award-winning Canadian authors, a Canadian film week at Dublin's Irish Film Institute, and concerts by outstanding Canadian choirs and orchestras. And with most of its players being Canadians, add the Belfast Giants hockey team to the list (www.belfastgiants.com). And, for ex-pats wanting play/see inline hockey, there's even a league! Check out the Dublin City inline hockey team at: www.riothockey.tk.

There are so many entertainment venues and events, with so much being added and deleted by the week, if not the day, that keeping track is beyond the scope of a Web site like this. But, locals and visitors alike are well served by many free sources of entertainment information, as well as newspapers, including the following:
