m2s 2014


Welcome to the website of the sixth annual Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival! Make a note in your diary for this year’s festival which runs from Thursday 11th-Sunday 14th September 2014. As you may already be aware, our shorter festival is due to the fact that it is part of the opening programme of the new Central Library and Cultural Centre. We look forward to welcoming you to a brand new additional venue for our many events in this landmark building with its stunning views of the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown coastline.
