Travel writing retreat takes place during
May 3rd to 9th, 2021.

Want to be a seasoned travel writer? See your name in print while enjoying free trips abroad to interesting and historical places?


It sounds glamorous, even ‘too good to be true.’ But it is possible - as many writers have shown - and learning the writing and editing skills necessary is one of the most important steps to success.


That’s why ‘Ireland Writing Retreat’ is proud to host its second specialized one-week course in the art of travel writing, with hands-on, practical workshops led by an experienced travel writer.


And there’s no better place to host such a ‘Travel Writing Week’ than in Ireland, a nation that has made tourism a flourishing brand, its top priority and its leading economic, environmentally-friendly sector.

So here’s your chance to combine an enjoyable week in the picturesque Emerald Isle – on Ireland’s highly-acclaimed and inspiring ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ in what many consider to be the most charming and authentic musical and cultural region of the entire country, Donegal, with learning more about the travel sector and honing your writing skills.
