Kingfisher Writers’ Retreat with Colm Keegan in The Wicklow Mountains

“A fun, intimate and intensive creative writing experience.”

Having run creative writing workshops & courses for numerous writers & organisations over the past few years, Colm Keegan recently fulfilled a personal dream and put together a fun, intimate and intensive creative writing experience in the beautiful, inspiring setting of the Wicklow mountains. The pilot programme, ran by Colm in partnership with Kippure Estates, Co Wicklow, proved so successful that we are now pleased to announce the launch of the Kingfisher Writers’ Retreat.


Taking place near the source of the river Liffey in Co. Wicklow, and programmed over three days and two nights through July, Kingfisher Writers’ Retreat is a combination of specially developed workshops, introductory meditation sessions, personal writing time, and 1 to 1 feedback/mentoring.

Space is allocated in the weekend programme for personal writing and/or downtime. Evenings will wind down with dinner in the on-site restaurant & bar, followed by drinks and a relaxed reading session.

All activities are optional but participation in everything is recommended as the weekend is set up with a view to providing a cumulative effect.

Places are limited to eight to ensure fair attention is given to all writers.

Cost will be €250 per person. Which includes:

Lunchtime snacks on arrival.
2 x nights SHARED accommodation in Athdown House
2 x 3 course evening meals
2 x full Irish breakfast.

Four retreats will take place in July

6th – 8th July.
13th – 15th July.
20th – 22nd July.
27th – 29th July.
