Dublin Festival of History 2019 – An annual free Festival, brought to you by Dublin City Council, and organised by Dublin City Libraries. The Festival has gained a reputation for attracting best-selling Irish and international historians to Dublin for high-profile history talks and debate.

This year's Festival will see over 150 walks, tours, exhibitions and talks take place across the city. Talks on the relationship between fashion and the city; a look at the history of housing prices in Dublin; anniversaries such as 50 years since the moon landing; the premiere of a documentary on the famous Alcock and Brown 1919 flight across the Atlantic ocean, and an in-depth look at the partition of Ireland 100 years on from the War of Independence, form just part of the programme of events taking place over the three weeks.

Dublin Festival of History 2019 will culminate with a ‘Big Weekend' of talks at the Printworks, Dublin Castle, taking place Friday 18th October to Sunday 20th October, with best-selling author of Wild Swans, Jung Chang, radio presenter and author Joe Duffy, and popular historian and TV presenter Dan Jones amongst many other speakers.
