The Cork International Poetry Festival, brought to you by the Munster Literature Centre, is Ireland's largest annual poetry festival., featuring readings, launches, award presentations and workshops.

The Cork International Poetry Festival is an annual gathering of some of the world’s best poets from home and abroad. Through their work, their solitary, unique voices gathered together, we can appreciate the richness and diversity of human experience. By engaging with their careful honing of language, their ability to imbue words with depth of meaning, we can hone the quality of our own thought and relationship with the truth. As a ‘low and dishonest decade’ comes to a close we can look to poetry to lend us the language to renew our search for justice and quality of life for all in the 2020s. Come to the festival to enrich your life – you will not be disappointed.
