Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of playing poker in Ireland will attest to it being one of the best places on the planet to do so. The Irish are the most hospitable of hosts, which leads to a fantastic, friendly atmosphere in the poker room, even if the stakes are high and the prizes large.
The latter, the part about the prizes being large, is especially true at the partypoker WPT National Ireland Festival of Poker where more than €500,000 is guaranteed to be won across the Irish Grand Prix, WPT National Ireland Main Event, and three side events, including a €2,150 High Roller.
All of the live elements to this amazing festival take place in the INEC Killarney between September 15-18, but it is also possible to play your way to Day 2 of the WPT National Ireland, and the final day of the Irish Grand Prix, online here at partypoker, as you can see in the schedule below.
