Dublin Quiz League

Latest update: As of 14th November 2022, the latest season of the Dublin Quiz League is underway and will run until Easter 2023. Keep up to date with the latest fixtures and results on the current season page.

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 have a total prize fund of over €1,000 per season and usually the top two teams in each division win 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.
