We are all busy getting ready for the festival this weekend, there is a great buzz around the town and a really amazing line-up of writers, talks and events right throughout the weekend.
Needless to say, we have some activity this weekend that may be of interest:
Saturday 3pm – Poetry reading by Dalkey poets Katie Donovan and Bernie Kenny – refreshments will, of course be supplied if you want to come along.
Saturday 6.30pm – Irish Times Wine tasting with John Wilson – quite a few people have already booked in for this, thanks. John has picked 7 of his favourite wines from our range and will do a light-hearted tutored tasting for us. This will take place in the courtyard behind the shop as the weather looks set to be nice for the weekend.
We are also doing 10% discount off EVERYTHING for the whole weekend – Friday to Sunday inclusive.
For all other details on events including such names as Maeve Binchy, Ross O’Carroll Kelly, Mark Little, Robert Fisk, John Connolly, Joseph O’Connor, Conor McPherson, David McWilliams and many more, see www.dalkeybookfestival.org
The other event that I think will be great is the Midsummer BBQ in Fitzpatrick’s on Sunday evening – contact Fitzpatricks on 01 2305400 for details and to book a ticket.
I really hope you can support Dalkey and the festival and come along for a great weekend!
