Delvin Book Festival

The annual Delvin Book Festival takes place each May Bank Holiday weekend at the village Cattle Mart.

This unlikely venue is transformed in to one of Ireland’s largest book shops and is packed to the roof with thousands of keenly priced books to cater for literally every imaginable taste.

In addition to the books, visitors can expect live music throughout the day, readings by celebrity guests and others, craft stalls and refreshments.

Delvin Cattle Mart is located at the northern end of the village on the N52 – Delvin to Clonmellon Road. 


This is a live mart and some evidence of its true purpose should be expected. Please follow signs at the venue and be aware of your footing as ground is uneven in places.
