ABOUT BLARNEY

  • In 2004, we bought Port Fairy's old Masonic Hall and set up Blarney Books, opening in January 2005. We had our first child in March 2005.
     

  • In 2007, we added an art space and changed our name to Blarney Books & Art. We had our second child in March 2007.
     

  • In 2009, we founded our now well-known and loved book-related art competition, the Biblio Art Prize. 
     

  • In 2015 we added a stage to our shop, for author and music events.
     

  • In 2015 we introduced a curated range of new books in order to enhance our author events.
     

  • In 2016, we hosted our inaugural Edible Books competition!
     

  • In 2017, a tiny wedge of the enormous pie that is the Port Fairy Folk Festival came to us (at last!) and we played host to some of Australia's living legends.
     

  • In 2018 more living legends via the Folky.
     

  • In 2019 our Biblio Art Prize turned 10. To mark the occasion we took the exhibition to Melbourne!
     

  • 2020 - Memorable for bushfires, Covid 19, and racial conflict. We took the opportunity to do some shop repairs & maintenance, and minor renovation work.
     

  • 2021 - reopened with a new look! New accessible entrance for everyone, a new events bar and some brand new shelving!
