Celebrating creativity of the Great Island.

Welcome to Cobh Readers and Writers, a entire island of creativity is in front of you. Come and join us. Our next festival will take place between the 23rd and 26th of April 2020. All the details of the exciting line up will be released here shortly, make sure you come back soon and check it out.

In the meantime, why not stay and explore our site, we have fantastic competitions, a closer look at the creative people who call our Great Island home, and we would love to introduce you to our committee.


There is room on this Great Island that we call home for endless creative possibilities. Cobh, sitting on the one of worlds greatest harbours, with its toes in the ocean, yet firmly anchored in history.


A strong community is one which celebrates its many parts. One which recognises each other differences, and yet still makes a commitment to each other to work for the benefit of all.


Every form of creativity is in essence about communication, the creator is trying to communicate to through their own medium. All we have to do is take the time to listen, see, and feel.

“Welcome to Cobh Readers and Writers, we hope that you enjoy our website and that you take the time to visit for our Festival in April 2020”

John Smith, Chairman.


“Hi, I hope that you get to enjoy our Festival in 2020. Cobh is a magical town, and the festival programme this year is bursting with creativity”

Trish Carlos, Secretary.

We celebrate all the creative arts by hosting a four-day festival each year.

Ran by an all volunteer committee, this groups aim is to promote the creatives arts in everyway possible.

The group is a not for profit community group, who seek to provide all their festival events at no cost or as low a cost as possible to the public.

They believe very strongly that the creative arts should be accessible to all.
