About Us

Poetry Ireland/Éigse Éireann is the national organisation for poetry in Ireland. We serve all 32 counties and receive support from The Arts Council of Ireland/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and The Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

As an organisation we are dedicated to developing, supporting and promoting poetry through Ireland. Poetry Ireland is committed to creating meaningful encounters with poetry for the public. We are also committed to creating performance and publication opportunities for poets at all stages of their careers. Through four core activities: publications, readings, education and the provision of an information and resource service, we seek to promote access and excellence by embracing and fostering poetry and language as tools for living.
