Doireann frequently travels to present readings of her poetry at literary festivals, as well as delivering guest lectures and facilitating creative writing workshops for all ages.  
"The Discovery Lectures... a series of talks in English designed to introduce readers to the depth and diversity of literature in the Irish language, past and present [including] a fascinating one about contemporary poetry given by Doireann Ní Ghríofa."   - Doireann Ní Bhriain, The Irish Times

"Doireann's reading was incredibly special. She delivers her poems with mystic and poise, a lovely, lilting voice delivers the strength and value of her work. A poet to be praised and anticipated." ​- Dani Gill, Director of Cúirt International Festival of Literature​
"A spellbinding reading of fresh new poetry by Doireann Ní Ghríofa - an exciting new voice in poetry" - Paul O Dwyer, Dromineer Literary Festival
"Doireann brings her whole heart, intuition and experience [as a guest speaker].  I have huge admiration for her intelligence, humour and above all her craftwork.  It is an honour to have been able to work with her."   - Leanne O Sullivan, School of English, UCC 
"This [creative writing workshop] has proved to be the most popular Irish workshop we have held... members of the group have also contacted me hoping that the workshops will continue... a good facilitator is essential to the success of a group. Doireann Ní Ghríofa has proven to be such a facilitator and her work locally and nationally is highly acclaimed. The group is extremely lucky with the facilitator. This is the most successful Irish language initiative within the library service."  Patricia Looney, Cork City Libraries
