Sharing stories and connecting minds, allowing magic to blossom… Each year Dingle Lit festival takes place in late November in the iconic surroundings of the Dingle Peninsula. The unique bilingual festival was conceived in 2019 with a twofold mission: to bring some of the best of contemporary writers in English to our local audience, and to celebrate the rich literary and cultural heritage of the area through an Irish language programme, as well as supporting new writing in Irish. Among the guests in previous years, we have been delighted to welcome President Michael D Higgins, Claire Keegan, Gabriel Byrne, Sally Hayden, Fintan O’Toole, Emma Dabiri, Diarmaid Ferriter and many more. Dingle Lit’s vision is of a festival where literature, language and landscape converge to create moments to share stories, to connect minds and allow magic to blossom. It’s a place that sparks discussion, fosters innovation and collaboration in the arts and creates a multigenerational community of readers and writers in one of the most beautiful and remote parts of Ireland.
