Scéal Eile is a special events arts venue – it does not host events on a fixed schedule basis. The venue is a beautiful, dynamic space known for our high quality intimate events, and for powerful collaborations with actors, writers, performers and artists. As well as traditional readings and book launches, we have previously hosted events as diverse as live music performance, micro art exhibitions, film screenings and theatrical performance. Scéal Eile has even provided the backdrop to wedding photographs!
Our theatre company Scéal Eile Productions produces events in Scéal Eile and tours plays to theatres and venues.
To stay on top of events we are creating, touring or hosting, visit our upcoming events page here, or follow us on facebook and twitter. If you are interested in collaborating with us or would like to discuss holding an event at Scéal Eile Books, why not get in touch to discuss what we can do for you? We can host a reading or launch in the shop, or in a venue with greater capacity.
Whenever possible our launches are free of charge so that everyone can experience the joy of hearing an author talk about or read from their work. When a charge must apply, the price usually includes an extra such as a glass of wine or a copy of the book being launched.
Ticketed events in Scéal Eile usually sell out quickly, booking ahead is advised.
