Winter Garden

500 500 @MakePlayGo The Best Things to do in Dublin with Kids

Winter Garden at The Dublin Book Festival

Free Family Event as part of the Children’s Programme at The 2018 Dublin Book Festival 

Take refuge from the cold in the indoor winter garden, where you and your family can curl up on our beanbags with a book and warm up with a bowl of homemade soup or hot chocolate in the cafe.

Try your hand at writing your own story, browse the bookshop or take part in one of the free, fun storytelling sessions and workshops. A free day for all the family where you can immerse yourself in the magical world of books!

The Children’s Books Ireland Book Clinic for children will be on hand too! Looking for a new series to delve into? Feeling uninspired by your bookshelves at home? Do you need a prescription for an exciting new read? Then pop along to the CBI Book Clinic in the Winter Garden where you can visit the CBI Book Doctor, tell them about your favourite books and come away with a personalised Reading Passport, including a prescription for your next book. Each patient will also get a copy of Children’s Books Ireland’s Inis Reading Guide to take home and keep.

There are so many wonderful events taking place at the Winter Garden this year, including a George Bernard Shaw exhibition, the Laureate na nÓg poetry event for children, and the Treasure Island Treasure Hunt. There are also book launches by Lilliput Press, Irish Pages Press and La Muse Books, and last but not least, Irish PEN’s launch of International PEN’s Women’s Manifesto in Ireland.

Drop-in, no booking required.
