Dublin Book Festival, in collaboration with the OPW, is delighted to present a fun-filled summer day of book and creative events for all the family to enjoy, all taking place in the beautiful grounds of Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park.

Join us for an exciting and action-packed day of events and workshops featuring some of Ireland’s best-loved children’s authors and illustrators including Niamh Donnellan, Leona Forde, Shane Hegarty, Emma-Jane Leeson, Muireann Ní Chíobháin and Alan Nolan. Get your next book recommendation from the Children’s Books Ireland Book Clinic, then try your hand at several musical instruments at the Music Generation Dublin City workshop, before kicking back and enjoying a performance for all the family.

We’ll also have plenty of drop-in activities to enjoy, including a self-led family scavenger hunt to enjoy in your own time, book shop browsing, our children’s book swap stand, and our creative arts and craft station. So come on down to Farmleigh on Monday August 5th for our festival events and a stroll around the beautiful grounds.

This is an outdoor event on the lawns behind the house so please dress for the weather and feel free to bring picnic blankets.

Please note we will be capturing candid imagery at this event for use on our social media.
