The LGBTQ+ matchmaking festival returns the weekend before Valentine’s Day 2024! The not-for-profit festival takes place in the Inn at Dromoland Hotel in Clare. It brings the LGBTQ+ community together in a safe space and provides lots of great music, activities and matchmaking. We’re proud to be sponsoring The Outing and supporting the LGBTQ+ community.


Guests will be busy with plenty to do over the days. Some of the acts include Paul Ryder, Mark T Cox, Sparkle and more. Throughout the weekend, there’s a Queer Craft Fair and Queer Film Festival. The full schedule is yet to be announced, so stay tuned. Do you fancy going with a friend? We’ll have a fun competition closer to the festival’s start date so keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram account.



Our Jamie at the Outing Festival 2023

Speaking about the weekend, Blacknight CEO said “It’s important to promote inclusivity and diversity, and the Outing Festival does exactly that. We’ve sponsored the festival for many years, but we’re glad to be able to give back to the community even more with our competition in line with their 11th anniversary. We also offer .GAY and .LGBT domains so the community can build more safe spaces online.”


Founder of the Outing Festival and Queen of Matchmaking, Eddie McGuiness said “We’re thrilled with our on-going Matchmaking with Blacknight, who are sponsoring our festival again for 2024. Not only that, but the Outing Festival website has been hosted by Blacknight for over 10 years, and their support for the festival and LGTBQ+ community is really appreciated.”
