A look back at Dublin Festival of History

Printer-friendly version

DFoH is 5Dublin Festival of History celebrated its fifth birthday this year and in our opinion it was the best year yet! Our packed programme of events drew a record attendance at The Printworks Venue, Dublin Castle, city libraries and other venues around the city. 

Speakers included Third Reich expert and Hitler biographer, Ian Kershaw, former MP and the last Governor of Hong Kong, Chris Patten and art historian Janina Ramirez well known for her insightful history documentaries on the BBC.

Thanks to the speakers, participants and history buffs who came along to our events and helped make this year's festival such a success.

With over 90 free events, the Dublin Festival of History took place from 29 September to 14 October 2017. The programme included history lectures, walks, films and seminars and for the first year a new History day for families and children.  Check out some photos from the History day at Richmond Barracks on Saturday 7 October:
