The Dublin Book Festival is one of Ireland’s most successful and vibrant book festivals, running since June 2005. 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 2012 was a great success and found a new home in Smock Alley Theatre, Temple Bar and will take place in November 2013 using Smock Alley Theatre as the festival hub.
We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin Book Festival 2013!
