Welcome to the programme for the sixth annual Dublin Festival of History. We are pleased to bring you over 140 FREE history events in venues across the city.

See what’s on in your local library, in other venues around the City, and on our final Big Weekend in City Hall & Dublin Castle.

We’ve also got lots of free walks and exhibitions and a dedicated day of Fingal History.

With so many lectures, walks, exhibitions, songs, maps and film in our diverse programme, we hope you’ll join us for a slice of history – and don’t forget you can borrow a history book for free in any public library and at the Pop-up History Library at the Big Weekend in Printworks, Dublin Castle.

You can also pick up a copy of the programme at your local library, or download a copy now.

All events are FREE, but some need to be booked – please see individual events for details.

The Dublin Festival of History is proudly brought to you by Dublin City Council.
