Fingal Poetry Festival

From our base at Skerries Mills, within easy reach of Dublin, the Fingal Poetry Festival continues to grow and engage with the broader community of Fingal in order to present the very best poetry to the widest possible audience. Our remit is to feature poets at every stage of development — from emerging talents, through emerging and already-established voices, right up to and including leading contemporary exponents of the art. Once again, our partner in all of this will be music, close cousin to rhyme and metre.

Our mission is community and cultural engagement, inclusivity, equality, diversity, and openness through the English and Irish language. We continue to work towards a more sustainable Festival exploring ways to reduce our Carbon footprint.

We are aiming to create a lively atmosphere around Skerries in the run-up to events and over the Festival weekend itself. Expect to find poetry in unexpected places — on shop windows, pavements — and, for the second year running, colourfully illuminated and projected at Floraville, our lovely little park right in the heart of town beside the Library. We very much hope to see you in person in September!
