About the Festival


The Dublin Festival of History is an annual free Festival, brought to you by Dublin City Council, and organised by Dublin City Libraries. The Festival has gained a reputation for attracting best-selling Irish and international historians to Dublin for a high-profile weekend of history talks and debate in the late Autumn. Previous speakers include Jung Chang, Alison Weir, Ian Kershaw, Michael Palin, Anne Applebaum, Tom Holland, Simon Schama, Peter Frankopan, Richard Evans, Charles Spencer, Hew Strachan, Peter Snow, Robert Harris, Janina Ramirez and many more.

Podcasts of previous years are available and remember, all events are free.
