Magical Writer’s Weekend

Earlier this year, I received an offer to run a writer’s weekend in a fairy fort. No, you didn’t read wrong. It’s in a place called Fairy Fort Farm in Borrisoleigh, North Tipperary. It’s just half an hour from the Rock of Cashel and there is a lot of fairy and leprechaun lore attached to the area.


The weekend will run from September 14-16th (Fri-Sun) and will cater for any writer who has a strong idea for a book or story that they want to develop. It’s half a workshop, half a retreat, so it’ll suit writers who want the space to write, but also the chance to meet like minded souls. And the tranquil atmosphere and beautiful scenery will put you in the right mood for writing. To be practical for a moment, the cost will be €100 for the weekend, including two nights accommodation and lunch. Single supplement of €15 a night applies.

The weekend is open to beginners and to people who have started working on their idea, but may be a little stuck. There’ll be workshops on the Saturday and Sunday, where people will have a chance to share their ideas and get feedback on them, from me and other writers. When not writing, people will have the chance to walk in the surrounding countryside, work on their ideas and chat to the other participants.

If you’re in Ireland and you’d like to come to the workshop, simply comment on this blog with your email address and I’ll send you the logistical details.
