Originally established in 2017, GamerFest is a gaming and esports event that has been developed with a community-first approach, welcoming gamers from across Ireland, the UK and Europe. 

At the heart of GamerFest over the last number of years has been the GamerFest Live Stage which sees a huge variety of gaming content across the weekend including esports tournaments, special guest appearances and gaming challenges. 

Visitors to the event can also expect a wide array of gaming entertainment including the latest titles, VR gaming and technology, an expo hall and market place to grab the latest gaming equipment and gear.

“But to see the excitement and anticipation amongst our community for the return of GamerFest is just incredible. We can’t wait to see everyone at the RDS this October.”
