IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Given the current situation, you will not be surprised that we have taken the decision to postpone our upcoming annual Dalkey Book Festival which was due to take place 18-21 June 2020.

We are sorry that we won’t be seeing you in June but hope to reschedule the event for later in the year, once the position becomes clearer.

The winners of the inaugural Dalkey Literary Awards will be announced at the festival on that later date; meanwhile the shortlists which will be announced soon. 

On behalf of the Dalkey Book Festival team we hope that you and your families remain safe and healthy.
