International Literature Festival Dublin
On an island of storytellers and in a city where books are treasured, International Literature Festival Dublin (ILFD) is Ireland’s leading literary event. Since 1998, we 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, we’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.
At ILFD, you’ll find events for readers of all ages and interests, including an out-of-the-box Fringe programme, events for Kids & Family, and professional development to help Advance your practice. The festival’s presence is felt throughout the year with Off The Page – bespoke events featuring writers making headlines.
