The Talbot Hotel Carlow are the proud official sponsors of The History Festival of Ireland 2013 on Saturday 15th - Sunday 16th June

Last year’s inaugural History Festival of Ireland was deemed such a worthy and sun-blessed event, that its back. Once again curated by author and historian Turtle Bunbury, this year’s event takes place amidst the resplendent ruins and walled gardens of Duckett’s Grove.

30 leading historians and thinkers from Ireland and abroad will resolve and confound in equal measure, audiences will be given plenty of time to debate and question, and a handful of stage performances of a historical tendency will compete for attention with author interviews and other miscellany relating to everything from ancestry to warmongery.

One €20 ticket will give you access to the entire gamut of talks, lectures, performances and debates for the whole day. Tickets will be limited and are available on For more information on the festival please see
