Busy looking for inspiration for the weekend? Look no further. The Dublin Book Festival which started on Tuesday, November 8, and ends this Sunday has plenty of things planned for the weekend.

Now, quickly, just a little bit on what this festival is all about. It’s about days of fantastic events, from Irish women’s speeches to crime to discussions around the literary scene in Ireland. It also features walking tours which have always been very popular over the years. These include literary walking tours, historical walking tours around medieval Dublin, nature walks along the Royal Canal, wellness walks in the beautiful surrounds of the Botanic Gardens, Iveagh Gardens and Dublin Castle and more.

So, what can you look forward to for Saturday and Sunday? We think that this Dublin Castle Family Treasure event is a good one to enjoy as a family together. It promises to be a fun-filled day for everyone in the family to work together as a team. Follow the clues throughout the castle to discover Dublin Castle and return for your prize!

There’s also the opportunity to get out your dancing shoes at this family music event on Sunday. You may also be interested in the literary walking tour (only a few seats remain). Starting off in the historic surrounds of Dublin Castle, you will join Pat Liddy or one of his expert guides on a tour of the city to learn about some of the most famous writers associated with Dublin, from the 18th century to today. You will also receive a map of Dublin which is illustrated by Pat Liddy and pass by iconic places including the Chester Beatty Library, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Marsh’s Library and Fishamble Street.

Or how about dropping by at the Creative Station? It gives an opportunity to get creative and is ideal for the entire family. All you need is to bring along your imaginations and get drawing and writing at the DBF Creative station! The station will be open from 11am – 3pm on a drop-in basis. There’s also a children’s music workshop and since it was very popular, new tickets have been added.

There’s plenty more happening, and we know you would want to check out all the details. So, here’s a link for you to get the best out of the Dublin Book Festival on the weekend.

We hope you have a good time – happy countdown to the weekend, folks!
