Event Information

This fair has now been re-arranged for Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th November.

Esteemed booksellers from Ireland, Scotland and England descend on one of Ireland’s finest hotels for the annual PBFA book fair. From general secondhand books to exceedingly rare items, the fair encompasses books, prints, manuscripts and ephemera.  

Established for some twenty years, the Dublin book fair has been opened in the past by various writers, including not one, but two Booker prize winners in John Banville and Anne Enright.   

Parking is available at the hotel and there is easy access to train and bus services. The Royal Marine offers full disabled access and enviable bar and restaurant facilities available throughout the day.

The image you see is the statue in Merrion Square, Dublin, of the Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde who was born in Dublin in October 1854.
