Now in its sixth season, the Dublin Quiz League is a monthly competition where teams of 4 compete against each other in a series of quiz “matches” – basically an easier and more fun version of University Challenge (without the buzzers). At the end of the 7-month season, the top teams win cash prizes!

Matches are held in a Dublin city centre pub every month between September and April, each match night being held on a Monday and lasting from approx. 7.30pm to 10pm.

The list of quiz dates for the 2019-2020 season is as follows:

  • Mon Sep 30th
  • Mon Nov 4th
  • Mon Dec 2nd
  • Mon Jan 27th
  • Mon Feb 24th
  • Mon Mar 23rd
  • Mon Apr 20th

How it works

Teams consist of 4 people. Substitutes are allowed for each match if any of the original 4 cannot make it on a particular night.

If an individual wishes to join (without a team) they are welcome to do so, and we will assign them to an available team.

The entry fee (to cover the full quiz season) is €60 per team of 4, or €15 per person.

Each team will be required to write one set of questions at some stage during the league season. Full guidelines for writing the questions will be supplied to each team at the appropriate time.

Exact prizes to be determined by the number of teams & will be announced in September.  For comparison, in the 2018-19 season, there were 21 teams taking part and cash prizes for the top 6 teams, with the winning team taking home €300 and a total prize fund of over €1,000!
