The Dublin Book Festival is one of Ireland’s most successful and vibrant book festivals, running since June 2006. The annual public festival showcases, supports and develops Irish publishing by programming, publicising and selling Irish published books, their authors, editors and contributors – all in an entertaining, festive, friendly and accessible environment that reflects the creativity and personality of the Irish publishing sector and its authors.
DBF has grown year on year. Last year, we had over 11,000 unique viewers of our online events. We featured almost 200 authors across 60 events, and we grew our family of trusted partner organisations, venues and sponsors. We can’t wait to see what 2021 brings.
DBF2021 is in the early stages of planning, so we want to hear from publishers, authors, artists and audiences across the country. If you have a book due for release this year that would be a good fit for DBF2021, we want to hear from you! Do you have an event idea that you’d love to see at this year’s festival? Then send us an email!
