Cúirt is an annual contemporary literature festival based in the West of Ireland that specialises in bringing established writers, emerging talent and the festival audience under one roof to create unique literary experiences.
Founded in 1985, Cúirt was a three day poetry festival; it has since grown to a week-long event and expanded to include fiction, non-fiction, genre writing, debate, events for young people, community-focused activities, visual art and film. Cúirt seeks to provide a world class programme of literary and arts events that cater to local, national and international attendees. The Festival aims to showcase and champion Irish writers alongside authors from across the globe.
