Dublin Book Festival is taking place online this year and we at Farmleigh are delighted to be hosting. The Dublin Book Festival was established in 2006 by Publishing Ireland to celebrate all that is best in Irish writing and publishing.
Taking place in November, the festival programmes events in venues throughout the city of Dublin, including Dublin City Libraries, National Library of Ireland, Irish Writers Centre, The Gutter Bookshop, Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, The National Botanic Gardens, Dublin Port, EPIC – The Irish Emigration Museum, Fighting Words and many more locations. The diverse programme covers everything from poetry to science, history to poetry, comedy, literary fiction and a full family and schools’ programme.
There is a programme of over 40 online events for you to choose from. The 2020 Programme of Events features a DBF Autumn series, a selection of events which will be streamed on a weekly basis ahead of the festival season. The Main Programme and Children’s & Family Programme will begin on 27th November. Most events are free but require registration. Keep an eye out for Farmleigh’s exquisite interiors and some special guests.
