Burlington Hotel to Kick off Irish Winter Festival

Posted: Oct. 31st, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Irish Winter Festival

Dublin's Burlington Hotel will be the center of the festivities surrounding the Irish Winter Festival starting Friday October 26th. This year promises an explosive main event to out scale all those before it and festivities in previous years have featured novelty games like Blind Man's Bluff and Beer Pong.

One of the most eagerly anticipated live events of the year kicks off this weekend at The Burlington Hotel in Dublin. We are of course talking about the Irish Winter Festival.

The €1,125 buy-in Main Event always attracts some of the most familiar faces from the UK & Ireland circuits, with the likes of Marty Smyth, Eoghan O’Dea and Neil Channing just three of the names who would be considered regulars in this event.

Last year 395 players bought into the Irish Winter festival, creating a prize pool of almost €400,000, the lion’s share of which finding its way to John Keown (pictured) who walked away with a bankroll-boosting €100,000 for his efforts over the weekend.
