The Dublin Book Festival is one of Ireland’s most successful and vibrant book festivals, running since June 2006.  The annual public festival showcases, supports and develops Irish publishing by programming, publicising and selling Irish published books, their authors, editors and contributors – all in an entertaining, festive, friendly and accessible environment that reflects the creativity and personality of the Irish publishing sector and its authors.

The Dublin Book Festival 2020 will take place from 27 November – 6 December.

We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin Book Festival 2020!
