Irish Book Week launched in 2018.

Irish bookshops play a crucial role in championing homegrown talent and putting great Irish books into the hands of readers. Irish Book Week celebrates Irish authors and illustrators, publishers, and Irish interest books, as well as the many brilliant bookshops that sell them. Just under 250 bookshops are registered to participate this year.
