A national Book Town in the heart of Ireland
April 19 - 21 2024

Granard Booktown Festival
April 19 - 21 2024

About Us

Granard Booktown festival is inspired by the global booktown movement most notably our neighbours Wigtown in Scotland. Through books and the arts Granard, a small midlands town will become Ireland's newest booktown. Using words and literature we will bring speakers, writers and artists to the town over a long weekend each April. By being a booktown we will encourage people who love books to visit the town and share in the arts generated around books and provide cultural amenities through the building of not just a national festival but an international one in the heart of Ireland.
