    Dalkey Book Festival

    Dublin is a UNESCO City of Literature, with literary festivals taking place throughout the year. One of the most exciting is the Dalkey Book Festival in County Dublin

    They say Dublin is a city of villages. It's also a UNESCO City of Literature. Makes sense then that literary legends flock to Dalkey, a seaside village that sits about 30 minutes by train from the city centre, for the annual Dalkey Book Festival

    Every June this sleepy seaside village is transformed into a lively literary hub for the Dalkey Book Festival.

    People flock to Dalkey for the gorgeous architecture built into the sheer landscape along the coast, for the stunning views of Dalkey Island from Coliemore Harbour and for the cosy village atmosphere it has at its core. Dalkey was also the birthplace of George Bernard Shaw and has a rich artistic heritage, making it the perfect place for a literary festival of books and ideas.

    Famous novelists who have attended in previous years include Salman Rushdie, Joseph O'Connor, John Banville and Sebastian Barry. As well as literary legends, book lovers from around Ireland and the world attend the weekend-long event, even U2 frontman Bono, who owns a house in the village made an appearance at last year's festival! 

    The Dalkey Book Festival takes place from 16-19 June, 2022.
