Irish Poker Open


What do Maradona, Brian O'Driscoll and Patrick Clarke all have in common? A love of the black stuff for one (actually white stuff in Maradona’s case) and they’re also all legends! 

Which brings us to… yes, The Irish Open - the longest running No Limit Texas hold 'em poker tournament in Europe and the second longest in the world after the World Series of Poker! Don’t act like you’re not impressed…

First organised in 1981 by maverick Irish bookmaker Terry Rogers, the tournament is one of the world’s most prestigious live poker festivals and has become a fixture on the international poker calendar.
