Dingle Literary Festival

Dingle Lit Clg established The Dingle Literary Festival in 2019 as a community based
non-profit festival that strives to bring the joy of reading and writing to as many people of all
ages as possible. The festival is the idea of an enthusiastic volunteer group of book lovers
on the Dingle Peninsula.

The Dingle Literary Festival brings together readers of all interests with writers of local,
national and international standing. The festival inspires readers to read and writers to write.
Events happen, in both Irish and English, across Corca Dhuibhne, an established creative
landscape on the Wild Atlantic Way. The festival includes writer's workshops so emerging
writers can hone their skills and activities aimed at children, the readers and writers of the
The basic business model is that each festival will break even and should there be any
surplus it will be committed to be spent on the next festival. Essential to the model is that
contributing authors and other creative artists will be paid a fair fee for their efforts and
reasonable and previously agreed costs incurred by authors travelling to and staying on the
Peninsula will be reimbursed.
