The Dublin Festival of History is an annual free Festival, brought to you by Dublin City Council, and organised by Dublin City Libraries.

This year’s festival runs  11th September – 4th October 2020.

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.

Due to COVID-19 our 2020 Dublin City Council Festival of History is mostly digital but they’ve put together a great programme of history events.

As usual, all festival events are free, but some need to be booked.
