We currently run meet ups twice a week over at meetup.com:
We’re having the Tuesday night meet ups at Alfie Byrne’s pub next to the conrad hotel and across the road from the National Concert Hall. We’ve been using this location for the Sunday meet ups and it’s far more suitable for us. It also has plenty of good food and drink.
More info and location here: http://www.galwaybaybrewery.com/alfiebyrnes/
We’ll have board games there on the night, but feel free to bring along any of your own to play. We’ll be meeting at 7pm until around 10pm. Late comers always welcome 🙂

We meet up every Tuesday from 7 in Thomas Read’s pub on Dame Street in Dublin 2. All welcome!

BoardGamesIreland.com’s own meet up group has grown to over 300 members over the last weekend. This is pretty impressive as there were just 4 of us meeting up in a tea shop back in January.
It’s great to meet so many new people and to try out all the different games that they bring along with them.
The meet up group meets every Tuesday evening at 7pm in Thomas Reads pub on Dame Street, Dublin. As summer rolls in we may look at organising some weekend day time meetups and possibly even some outdoor ones weather permitting.
Geeks Go Gaming are back again this month with another meet up in the Black Sheep Pub on Capel Street from 1.30pm on Sunday the 22nd of June.
