The Jonathan Swift Festival
Various Locations, Thursday 23rd November - Sunday 26th November 2017
Join us this November to celebrate the life and work of Ireland’s most popular author. Listen to ballads from 300 years ago, take walking tours around Swift’s Dublin, watch a theatrical performance or sit down to eat a dinner in the beautiful surrounds of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. Immerse yourself in Swift's life and work, and hear from contemporary writers, musicians, historians and performers taking up Swift's challenge to “Go, traveller, and imitate if you can this earnest and dedicated champion of liberty.”
The Jonathan Swift Festival is run by Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin. It is supported by both Failte Ireland and Dublin City Council and collaborates with a number of cultural institutions across the city who have a historic or thematic link to Jonathan Swift’s life and work. In 2017 these include; Marsh’s Library, Dublin Castle, Christ Church Cathedral, Trinity College, The Irish Writers Centre, and St Patrick’s Mental Health Services.
