About this trip

Immerse yourself in your writing on an Irish Retreat. We’ll live like locals in the countryside and get inspiration from the sights and sounds of this ancient place.

We’ll have both full-day and morning writing workshops, and three full days exploring the beauty of Ireland with additional afternoon only trips.

Our lodging is provided by a cozy family-run country hotel for the first 7 nights, and the final night is in a Dublin luxury Castle hotel. 

The included amenities in this Irish Writing Retreat compare to none other, and the outings were specifically chosen to immerse you in beauty for your writing life. We will have time to meander, explore, and write at each site we visit.

Christina Dreve. Writing Coach.

Christina Dreve: Writing Coach

Christina believes writing is more a decision than a skill. When you understand how a writer thinks, you can practice and experiment, rather than judge your own writing. 

She provides support and encouragement for aspiring authors; bringing them from idea phase to becoming the writer they’ve dreamed of being. She’s a writing coach and author of 7 books, and still writing for herself and her ghostwriting clients.

Secret Ireland Tours are committed to doing everything possible to keep our clients safe while on tour with us in Ireland. As many know we rescheduled all of our 2020 tours to 2021 and we are keeping in close contact with the health Department in Ireland. All of the venue's and hotels we use have completed a Safety Charter course which allowed them to open to the public. We will not visit any site or stay in any hotel that has not completed this course. It was created by the tourist board in Ireland. We will do everything in our power to keep everybody safe. 

We believe that this tour that was rescheduled will go ahead but we will keep a close eye on the conditions and if we need to reschedule again, we will do so in consultation with you our clients.
