This collaboration reflects our commitment to supporting the arts and fostering a vibrant cultural landscape. We look forward to driving innovation and inspiration, much like the festival does, and are excited to be part of this journey”.

The Dalkey Book Festival, now in its 15th year, showcases the best of Irish and international talent. Founded in 2010 by Sian Smyth and David McWilliams, Dalkey Book Festival celebrates and fosters literary talent in Ireland as well as hosting some of the world’s leading writers and thinkers. Among the 100 authors taking part this year in 77 events over four days are such names as David Baddiel, Neil Jordan, and Henry Winkler.

The festival has established itself as a highlight of the Irish cultural calendar, partly because of the unique buzz only Dalkey can offer and the natural beauty of this heritage seaside town, and partly because of the wonderful talent it has attracted including Booker prize winners, global thought leaders, Oscar winners and Nobel Laureates.
