2015 Tours with Successful Authors

Your dreams of publication, all wrapped up in an unforgettable journey. 

Take an inspirational pilgrimage to the land of myth, mystery and magic, while embracing the opportunity to enrich your writing, meet like-minded individuals, and realize your creative dreams.

Your tour package will include private conferences, group classes, workshops, and individual partial manuscript critique. 

In between those classes and conferences, 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.

This year, we're offering three different tours: 

Mystery Writing & Series Crafting Retreat
with successful author Susan Spann

Editing Writers Retreat
with multi-published author and editor, Heather Webb
Best-Selling Author Writers Retreat
with best-selling author, Stephanie Cowell

These aren't the kind of tours where you board a giant bus at an ugly-early hour to visit a crowded site with thirty-five strangers. To ensure individualized attention and a friendly atmosphere, The Writers’ Retreats are limited to a maximum of twelve people, so we recommend that you reserve your place as soon as possible.

Come visit The Road Less Traveled and let the land that inspired William Butler Yeats, Anne Enright, Oscar Wilde, Roddy Doyle, C.S.Lewis and John Banville . . . inspire you.
