About

Kildare Readers Festival is brought to you every year in October by Kildare County Library and Arts Service. Our ethos is to connect our readers with authors and artists, working to bring the very best from the world of literature to our audiences through the provision of exciting, innovative and accessible events. Since its inception in 2010, our festival audiences have continued to grow and we look forward to presenting you with the very best from the world of literature and the arts.

The festival takes place primarily in the Riverbank Arts Centre with satellite events held in County Kildare Libraries. Kildare Readers Festival is funded by Kildare County Council and is coordinated by the Kildare Library & Arts Services.
