Cúirt International Festival of Literature

Cúirt International Festival of Literature

Rooted in Galway, the Cúirt International Festival of Literature is one of Europe’s oldest literary festivals. It professes to 'foster a community of readers interested in the world, creating a space for conversation, debate and reflection'. In April 2020, just weeks after lockdown restrictions were announced, the festival was held fully online. The Cúirt International Festival of Literature is taking place online again this year, with dozens of events from 21 to 25 April, including readings, interviews and discussion. For full details and to book tickets, visit www.cuirt.ie.
