Irish Book Week: 19 – 26 October 2024


Irish Book Week is an innovative partnership between Bookselling Ireland and Publishing Ireland. It launched in 2018 with huge succes. 

Associated with the Books Are My Bag campaign, and timed to maximise the potential of the Irish publishing schedule, the campaign message is tailored to the home market. Irish Book Week is backed by the Booksellers Association with a point of sale kit, social media plan and media coverage courtesy of Crotty Communications.

Irish Book Week celebrates the contribution that bookshops make to Irish culture, the economy and the revenue, and aligns with Ireland’s internationally recognised status as a country of books.

If you have events planned for Irish Book Week be sure to brand them Irish Book Week to help create the feel of a nationwide festival, and attract local and national media attention.

Booksellers Association members may opt in or out of participating in Irish Book Week at any point. Please email emma.bradshaw@booksellers.org.uk if you would like to check if you are registered to participate, or if you would like to change your participation.
