Céad míle fáilte! Welcome to our page! 

Democrats Abroad Ireland is the official country committee for US Democrats living in Ireland. Our main objective is voter registration assistance and education, but we have a very strong social side as well!  We hold monthly gatherings at the Arlington Hotel in city centre Dublin where we discuss political issues, hold viewing parties for debates, invite guest speakers, and generally have a bit of banter and cráic.  We also hold events throughout the year - 4th of July BBQ, Thanksgiving Dinner, Holiday party, and more!

Join Democrats Abroad today and you'll receive our membership emails with all the details for our events throughout the year!

    Thanksgiving Dinner with Legendary Director Jim Sheridan

    Director Jim Sheridan on the set of his film Brothers with Jake Gyllenhaal & Toby Maguire

    Join us for Thanksgiving Dinner- we've got our biggest event of the year coming up! We'll gather in the Charlemont Bar for drinks from 6:30 PM where football will be on, and set up our receiving table at 7:00 PM in advance of dinner at 7:30 PM. CLICK HERE to book now!

    Following dinner we are honoured to welcome legendary film director Jim Sheridan as our guest speaker. Mr. Sheridan needs no introduction as his work is known the world over: My Left Foot (Daniel Day-Lewis, Brenda Fricker), The Field (Richard Harris, John Hurt, Sean Bean), In The Name of The Father (Day-Lewis, Emma Thompson, Pete Postlethwaite), The Boxer (Day-Lewis), In America (Samantha Morton, Paddy Considine), Get Rich or Die Tryin' (50 Cent, Terence Howard), Brothers (Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Toby Maguire). Mr. Sheridan has just completed a short film with Selma Hayak called 11th Hour that takes place in a Manhattan bar on 9/11. He is also the curator of the Dublin Arabic Film Festival at the Irish Film Institute

    Mr. Sheridan's perspective (especially as seen in the film In America) is not unfamiliar to many of us. He knows what it really means for those who come to the US and how that story needs to be heard more than ever now. Given his personal story, the Trump election, and the current refugee crisis, we can think of no one more fitting to address our membership on Thanksgiving. We are honoured & delighted he is able to join us.
