Ó Bhéal Winter Warmer Festival

25th Nov – 27th Nov, 10am – 5pm, Conference Space


Ó Bhéal’s 10th Winter Warmer (and 2nd hybrid) festival presents over 30 poets from seven countries. Most of these featured guests will read/perform in-person at Nano Nagle Place, with others appearing virtually. All events will be free to access via our online Festival Stage and usual social media channels.

The festival will host two poetry workshops, music from Fiona Kelleher (in-person), a Round Table discussion centered on relationships between Human & Non-Human Life in Port Cities Poetry, and a Closed-Mic set for poets who have featured in Ó Bhéal’s regular open-mic sessions during 2022.

The shortlist and prize-giving for Ó Bhéal’s 10th International Poetry-Film Competition will be screened and simulcast, as will an additional, special selection of poetry-films made in Ireland.

This year’s Winter Warmer will also host the 2022 All-Ireland Poetry Slam Championship Final, featuring 12 poets (three from each province) who will compete over three rounds. This is the only ticketed event of the festival, to book your seat please visit the Eventbrite page.

Free Admission to all events (excluding the All-Ireland Poetry Slam)
