On Lambay Island
This is an opportunity to concentrate on starting, re-drafting or completing a piece of writing. We offer a calm, disciplined and supportive setting for people who really want to get some writing done, and will find it conducive to do so when this is their main focus for a few days.
We do this by
Providing you with a secluded location with minimal distractions, where day-to-day tasks are fully taken care of for you;

Time to take a walk in the farm or the countryside, swim, watch the sunset, soak up the atmosphere and chat to other writers.
The writing retreat is organised by Miriam Gage and Jonathan Gosling, who is author, co-author and editor of 8 books, many book chapters and over 60 published articles, reports and presentations.
