Delvin Book Festival

The annual Delvin Book Festival takes place each May Bank Holiday weekend.

For the main event, the village is transformed into Ireland’s largest book shop with thousands of keenly priced books to cater for literally every imaginable taste.

In addition to the books, visitors can expect live music, guest readers, craft stalls, refreshments and a carefully curated schedule of events in the lead up to the grand book sale itself.
