Global superstars like a Stephen Fry and Jony Ive, the man who, by designing the three most iconic products of our age the iPod, iPad, and iPhone, has changed your world probably more than any other single living human being, will join some of the world’s leading intellectuals such as three times Pulitzer prize winner, Thomas Friedman and giants of literature Marlon James, Deborah Levy, Richard Flanagan and Donal Ryan. We will also be hearing hotly-anticipated new work from Joseph O’Connor and Kevin Barry.

Alongside these established names we are delighted to include debut writers such as Emma Dabiri, Sinead Gleeson, Emilie Pine, Lynn Ruane, and Wendy Erskine.

Dalkey has always been much more than a book festival, we prefer to think of it as an ideas festival; with 70 events squeezed into four inspirational days, we cover a truly broad canvas.

Listen to Turkish firebrand Ece Temelkuran as she warns that good countries do go bad and we have no room for complacency. As we celebrate our first decade, some old friends of the festival, like Fintan O’Toole and Robert Fisk, will be back this year to share their latest thoughts with you.

Thank you to all our partners, including in particular our lead sponsor, Zurich, as well as our media partners, The Irish Times and The Financial Times Weekend.
