The festival features an exciting twist this year as the site has extended its popular Sole Survivor promotion to Six Survivors. This means that the six remaining qualifiers in the IWF main event will get free entry into next year’s Irish Open.

The festival, which features the €1,000 + €125 buy-in main event, is set to play out between Oct. 26 and 29 at Dublin’s Burlington Hotel, with a full schedule of side events yet to be announced.
