Newsflash November 2023: Registration is now open for the 2023-24 season of DQL, which will kick off on December 11th. See full launch announcement
See also: Brain of Dublin, our new individual tournament launched in 2019 which runs in parallel with the Dublin Quiz League.
Founded in 2015, the Dublin Quiz League (DQL) 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 on one Monday evening every month, usually between September and April.
The entry fee (to cover the full quiz season) is €60 per team of 4, or €15 per person.
We usually have a total prize fund of around €1,000 per season with generally the top two teams in each division winning cash prizes. (The exact value of the cash prizes are determined by the number of teams & are announced sometime after the season starts.)
For more details, see the How it Works page.

Following the removal of COVID-19 restrictions are no longer in place, we were delighted to be back in pubs for the seventh season of DQL, which began in November 2022 and ran until April 2023. We hope to be back for the next season in Autumn 2023 – watch this space in August/September for announcements, or email us at league (at) quizireland (dot) ie to be added to the mailing list.
