The fifth annual Dublin Festival of History will take place from 29th September to 14th October in Dublin Castle and various venues across the city. With over 90 free history events, this year's programme is the biggest and best yet! This specialist festival features Irish and international historians speaking on a myriad of historical topics as part of a jam-packed programme including lectures and discussions, film, exhibitions and walks. This year's speakers include Chris Patten, Janina Ramirez, Ian Kershaw and Robert Service. And this year the Festival takes over Richmond Barracks on 7th October for a history day for children; expect re-enactors, dressing-up, pop-up talks, craft, storytelling and lots to capture the interest of the young history lover.
