Since 2006, the Dublin Book Festival has been a permanent fixture in the city’s culture calendar, helping celebrate some of Ireland’s finest writers, illustrators, and publishers, along with promoting new and exciting talent from all over the island. While this year has proved to be a difficult time for public gatherings, DBF committed to delivering a world-class festival, whatever form it may take.

We delivered 59 online events for you to choose from. Our Main Programme, Children’s & Family Programme, and Schools’ Programme began on 27th November. Most of our events are available for playback at the link below.
