Literary and book festivals in Ireland 2022
Festival road trips are back!!!
Here’s a comprehensive list of literary, book and reading festivals throughout Ireland in 2022.
I’ve done the research so you don’t have to … all you have to do is decide which festivals to go to!
Thank you to all those organisers who supplied me with information. I wish all festivals great success in 2022! Thank you for helping to keep us book lovers entertained.
Special thanks to Mary McCauley who set up and managed this list up until this year.
