West Cork Literary Festival

July 12, 2019 - July 19, 2019

Now an annual highlight in the Irish literary calendar, the West Cork Literary Festival is a week-long celebration of writing and reading for people of all ages.  From its humble beginnings as a series of casual poetry readings and fringe events around the Chamber Music Festival, it has expanded into a varied and extensive programme of readings, talks and week-long workshops, growing more adventurous and imaginative with each year.

We are delighted to bring the finest Irish and international literary figures to West Cork every July – making exceptional talent accessible to local, regional and national audiences.  At the heart of the Festival is the practice and craft of writing, and in keeping with this Festival Director Eimear O’Herlihy devises a workshop programme second to none, designed to encourage and inspire novice as well as experienced writers.  Now in its 19th year,  the Festival is a social event, noted for its supportive and friendly atmosphere, and its personal touch.
