Gamerfest 18 kicks off in the Strand Hotel, Limerick this June Bank Holiday weekend and includes esport tournaments, a retro gaming area and YouTube stars to meet.

The esport tournaments will be in FIFA 18, F1 Virtual Reality Challenge,
and Tekken 7, and the festival will also have Nintendo Switches to play alongside VR headsets to try out.

YouTubers AntiTinkerbell, Nintendo Impact Gaming and ImScottJones will be there and there'll be prizes for the best cosplayers.

For those of us who perhaps feel too old to know the big YouTube stars, the Retro area will have Sega Megadrives, SNES consoles and more for some nostalgia.

A full list of games available at the festival and tickets can be found on www.gamerfest.ie
