Entertainment.ie was originally built by Fusio in 1997. From there it has grown into one of Ireland’s best known sites and into a separate business (although still just across the corridor from us!). From Movie Reviews to TV Listings to Celebrity Gossip to Album Reivews to Theatre Listings and now with a full event ticketing service the site is going from strength to strength. It has mobile apps for Listings, TV, Cineman and Gossip for the iPhone and Android platforms. It’s a big social media player too with nearly 50,000 friends on Facebook and over 120,000 site members. And to top it off it won three major awards in 2012 including the WebAwards Grand Prix prize for best website in Ireland.
Not bad for a little idea we had about listing things to do for the evening in Dublin!
