Cúirt International Festival of Literature

The 25th Cúirt International Festival of Literature will take place in Galway from April 20th to 25th. The stimulating programme will combine poetry, prose, memoir, debate and film with many of the world’s most accomplished writers visiting Galway to read from their work.
This 25th edition of Cúirt will cast a look back at the past with an evocative exhibition of recordings and images from the festival’s rich history. This past year has also been an exceptional time for Irish literature on the world stage and we are delighted to reflect that in the programme. At this year’s festival, Colum McCann will give his first reading in Ireland since his National Book Award win for Let the Great World Spin.
The festival mix of established writers alongside emerging voices will ensure a treasure chest of discovery for its audience. Younger readers are also catered for and the friendly backdrop of Galway makes for a warm and convivial host. This year we will unveil a number of special celebratory events and will also introduce a new festival club.The full programme is available at
