The Gathering 2013

The historic Saint Patrick’s Hall in Dublin Castle provided the perfect backdrop this morning for an Taoiseach, Enda Kenny to officially launch The Gathering 2013, an exciting Diaspora driven tourism initiative for 2013.

Tourism Ireland are driving the event and their reach to the 75 million Irish Diaspora will have a telling impact on the success of the initiative.

We, Irish Pubs Global are working hard to develop the first ever Irish Pubs Global Gathering for late Autumn in Dublin.

This will be a truly unique gathering that will bring Irish pub owners and managers from around the world together with the pub owners and managers in Ireland.

As we develop the Irish Pubs Global Gathering, we wish to gather as much input from you as possible.

What do you want to see, hear and take from a two and a half day event in Dublin in 2013? Please send your suggestions to

We are committed to delivering an exciting, dynamic event and to truly celebrate the value of the Irish pub, both in Ireland and overseas.
