WRITERS’ RETREATS WITH TOURS OF IRELAND




Thoroughly unique experiences,
the first of their kind.

Writers' Conferences & Retreats

Combined with Tours

Learn from Successful Authors, Editors, and Agents
to Become the best you can be.

Take an unforgettable journey that can be your springboard
to a successful career as an author. 

On this inspirational pilgrimage to the land of myth, mystery and magic, you can embrace opportunities to enrich your writing, meet like-minded individuals, and realize your creative dreams.

Your tour package will include private consultations, group classes, workshops, and individual attention aimed at your personal needs. 

In between those classes and workshops, you’ll have all-day or partial-day tours with a professional guide of the most famous, infamous, well-known, and hidden sites in the west of Ireland. From cliffs that soar 700 feet above the Atlantic, to a 12th century castle, to the forest said to be home of the King of the Faeries of Connaught, to the prehistoric dun fort on the island of Inis Mor . . . and that’s just a few of the beautiful places you’ll visit. After these busy tour and writing days, you can have leisurely evening meals with other writers, listen to stories before a fire, or just cozy up with a book.

2020 will be our sixth year of Ireland Writer Tours. And this year, Galway is the European City of Culture. So come celebrate with us. We have two enlightening and inspiring workshops scheduled for the summer of 2020: 


THRILLING CONCEPTS:
