UKIPT Dublin

Dublin

Season 5 of the UKIPT will bow out in style in the beautiful city of Dublin. The event - which also coincides with the European Poker Tour’s return to Ireland for the first time in eight years - will bring two huge poker tours together for the Emerald Isle’s biggest ever poker festival. Both the UKIPT and EPT will combine at The Royal Dublin Society (RDS), the setting for the third-ever stop in EPT history back in 2004.

Formed in 1731, the RDS is firmly established as one of Europe’s premier entertainment venues. Located in the heart of Ballsbridge, the RDS is five minutes from the action-packed heart of Dublin’s city centre, and is not only home to the Leinster Rugby team, but regularly welcomes musical legends, with Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, Radiohead, Metallica and U2 all enjoying sell-out concerts in recent times.

The festival will take place at the Royal Dublin Society from February 09-20, 2016. Check back soon for more news on the UKIPT Season 5 Grand Final in Dublin.
