On an island of storytellers and in a city where books are treasured, International Literature Festival Dublin is Ireland’s leading literary event. Since 1998, they have brought the world’s finest writers together to enthral, engage and excite audiences.

In readings, conversations, debates, screenings, guided walks, events, podcasts and broadcasts, they’re proud to celebrate the very best Irish and international fiction and non-fiction authors, poets, lyricists, playwrights and screenwriters. Irish language writing and emerging talent are always supported, and new voices championed through commissions and public initiatives. Festival strands include StoryMachine, a curated series for families and children; fringe programme Boundless; and Advance professional development events. ILFDublin’s presence is felt all year with Off The Page – bespoke events featuring writers making headlines.
