Corporate Partners

Establish a lasting affiliation with Ireland’s most illustrious art form.

"Sleep and sport are two very significant dimensions in our hotel group, so the opportunity to associate with Poetry Ireland on beautifully produced, world class anthologies forefronting both, proved irresistible". 
PATRICK KING, CEO of The Doyle Collection

Poetry Ireland is driven by excellence. Goals such as inclusion and diversity, gender equality, and invigorating communities through the arts, are intrinsic to our work. As one of Ireland’s flagship literature organisations, we occupy a strategic and unifying position in the cultural landscape of the island. Our wide-ranging work offers excellent opportunities to connect with diverse stakeholders and publics.
