We'd like to hear from you if you can help bring the Poetry Ireland Centre to life. 


In September 2016 Poetry Ireland moved into its beautiful new home at No. 11 Parnell Square in the heart of Dublin City. Poetry Ireland and the Irish Heritage Trust are now embarked on ambitious and innovative plans for the redevelopment of this expansive Georgian townhouse as an all-island institution dedicated to poetry in all its forms. When complete, this development will house the Seamus Heaney Working Library, a contemporary performance space and a café. Playing a vital role in the contribution to the wider cultural regeneration of Parnell Square, the Poetry Ireland Centre will be a shared heritage space that can be enjoyed by the public, for generations to come. 
Poetry Ireland welcomes all forms of support – from once-off donations to philanthropic patronage, corporate and individual support and memberships of the organisation. As the Poetry Ireland Centre refurbishment progresses over the next three years, we are particularly keen to build relationships with partners who wish to join us in bringing this extraordinary transformation to fruition.
With a clear implementation strategy for this landmark project overseen by Poetry Ireland and the Irish Heritage Trust, donors and supporters are assured of an investment which will deliver significant benefit for artists, visitors, students, the local community and wider public.
