Cúirt International Festival of Literature in association with Paddy Irish Whiskey are presenting an impromptu/pop up programme of stories, poems and music in public houses in the Latin Quarter and Galway City. These will  be hospitable and entertaining gatherings, a coming together to share stories, yarns and songs. The sessions are free to the public and will feature Galway’s artists and special guests appearing at Cúirt. Each event will be unique!

The atmosphere for the sessions will be warm and friendly, reminiscent of a visit to the fireside of a story teller’s house and there will be a chance for the audience to join in and share their story too!
