Welcome to the Dalkey Book Festival

presented by Zurich


We’re so delighted you’ve landed here, welcome to Dalkey Book Festival. 

The 2021 festival is over and we are now planning 2022 which is one of the best parts of the job, who should we invite, who might we put together on panels, what topics will you most want to listen to and discuss amongst your friends. 

Keep the dates 16th to 19th of June 2022 free where we can all meet again, face to face, in tents, bars, towers and halls all around Dalkey once more. 

Thanks so much to all of you who bought a ticket for the 2021 festival @The Tower.

We appreciate your support; we couldn’t do this without you.
