39th Annual Goldsmith Festival

The Goldsmith International Literary Festival festival is the third longest running festival of its type in Ireland and takes place over the June Bank Holiday each year.

Founded to celebrate the literary genius of Oliver Goldsmith and to promote Goldsmith Country as a tourist attraction, it has over the years explored many aspects of Goldsmith’s life, society, and writings.

A huge variety of renowned critics, politicians, poets, commentators and academics have stimulated audiences over that time.
