Supporting NOIRELAND

NOIRELAND International Crime Fiction Festival was founded to provide a platform for the wealth of crime writing talent emerging from Ireland, showcasing it alongside some of the biggest international names in crime and thriller writing.

As a very new and independent organisation we rely on partnerships, sponsors, donations, ticket sales and volunteers to support our work.

A brand new crime fiction festival with a distinctly Irish accent

NOIRELAND celebrates an island's love of crime fiction. The 3-day festival will be showcasing the amazing talent emerging from Ireland currently. We'll also be exploring crime writing from across the world, and looking at the impact Ireland has had on the genre: from the Irish cops of New York, to the sons and daughters of immigrants who have transformed crime fiction.
