Book Club @ Goethe-Institut Irland

You love reading and discussing books written in German? Our book club focuses on exploring the work of acclaimed German-language authors. The titles are usually works by contemporary authors and are not always available in English translation. We also choose a classic sometimes for our book club meeting. The Book Club @ Goethe-Institut Irland is free of charge and meets once a month on the second Wednesday at 6.30pm. Participants either buy the title themselves or borrow them from our library or our digital library, Onleihe. The discussion will take place in German.

If you have any questions or would like to register for the book club, please send us an email to

Meet the Author: International Online Book Club

Join us for our online book club, where you will meet well-known German authors who will read from their works – whether novels, poetry or even spoken word - and then discuss them with a moderator before taking questions from the audience. Join our international diaspora across Europe as we get to know these authors, their works, and the stories behind them.
This event takes place online and in German. Participation is free of charge.
