Support Cúirt

Since 1985, Cúirt has brought book lovers and writers under one roof for a week every April in Galway and has developed a reputation as Ireland’s premier literary event. In 2020, we continued our traditon of bringing writers and readers together with our first ever digital festival.

Cúirt would not be possible without the support of our audiences, and the generous donors who support the festival year on year. Especially during this time, your support allows us to continue bringing the best writers to Galway (and sometimes, directly to your homes!). If you’d like to make a donation to the festival, your support will be much appreciated.
