23rd - 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."
