The New Way to meet friends. socialize. find your match. discover events. laugh.

Are you new to town? On vacation? Looking to meet new friends? Interested in discovering local events? Adventure Belfast is a group of adults 18 to 39 from all walks of life in Northern Ireland (primarily Belfast) that all share a passion for socializing. We are free to join, and there's absolutely no commitment!

We are not a business, organization, corporation. We are a personal-interest hobby project run by Josh Hoggan. There is absolutely no fee for using our web site, and no revenue is generated through Adventure Belfast whatsoever.

Who We Are

Adventure Belfast was designed to cater to everyone who has ever felt a need to branch out and make new connections. We are an all-inclusive and healthy social activity group. It is no secret that developing a social group or finding a new circle is challenging at best, especially when moving to a new city.

So, whether you've just moved to town, are recently separated, or just looking for a change, our group is welcoming to all! There is no fee for joining, and absolutely no commitment. Every member is encouraged to contribute in some way, even if that means simply commenting on posts or sharing news of local events in town.

Our History

Originally starting as Adventure Kelowna (and later renamed to Sophisticated Social) in British Columbia in 2011, founder Josh Hoggan travelled to Victoria, Kamloops and even New Zealand to launch branches of the group there. Now located in Belfast, Northern Ireland we've launched as of July 2019!



Founder Josh Hoggan moves from Canada to Belfast after hosting over 400 events and gaining traction with 8,000 members in Sophisticated Social (Kelowna, Kamloops, Victoria). It's time for a new adventure!
