Dublin Book Festival 2018, Ireland

November 15, 2018 - November 18, 2018

Dublin Book Festival

From Joyce to Yeats and Wilde, Ireland has been renowned for its literary prowess, come this November you can meet the finest crop of the Emerald Isle’s bards at the Dublin Book Festival held from November 15 to 18 at various places around the Irish capital.

From comedian Jason Byrne to poet Chris Agee, writer and filmmaker Cethan Leahy, and Rooney Prize winning author Elizabeth Reapy, the festival features a diverse range of talent from the spoken and written word.

Since 2006, the Dublin Book Festival has been one of the leading literary festivals in the country, and with Dublin itself being a UNESCO City of Literature, what better place is there to celebrate the written word?
