Writing Residency at Kylemore Castle in the West of Ireland

Join us at the Global Centre on the grounds of Kylemore Abbey, a warm place for dark months. We take care of room and board, you focus on the work and connect with fellow writers.


Join a like minded group of peers in the peaceful surroundings of Kylemore Estate for our writers residency week.
