Connemara, County Galway, Ireland
Do you want to make writing your screenplay a joy instead of a chore?
Do you want your script to stand out so it doesn’t get lost in the pile?
Would it be a dream for you to write in a place that shaped some of the world’s most notable writers?
Are you feeling burned out and in need of inspiration?
Then this is the retreat for you!
Imagine yourself sitting by a peat fire in a cozy corner of an historic Irish country house as you craft the bones of your newest script.
Maybe you nurse a cup of hot tea and enjoy some traditional Irish soda bread as you write.
Or maybe you shamelessly quaff a pint of the freshest Guinness you’ve ever tasted. You take a moment away from your writing to savor the brew and watch creamy lace slide down the side of the glass.
Ah, this is living, you think.
Imagine studying screenwriting in the library of this house – the meeting place of artist and poet brothers Jack and William Butler Yeats and Oscar Wilde’s tutor, John Pentland Mahaffy.
How perfect would it be to live in this country house that was once owned by Oliver St. John Gogarty, the poet who inspired the character Buck Mulligan of James Joyce’s “Ulysses”?
This is where William Butler Yeats and his bride spent their honeymoon.
This is where Winston Churchill stayed on his holidays.
This is where we’ll live during our Ireland Screenwriting Retreat.
We’ll have an intimate group of 6-10 screenwriters only.
Bill Boyle will hold daily classes on screenwriting, except on the day we go to Sligo (more about that later).
Bill will meet with you one-on-one to coach you on your script.
We have exclusive use of the Renvyle House Hotel library for our classes and writing time. Of course, you can work on your script anywhere inside and outside of this lovely hotel.
Pat Speight, one of Ireland’s best-known storytellers, will join us for a storytelling workshop.
You’ll have lots of time to write and enjoy the historic Renvyle House Hotel on the shores of the Wild Atlantic Way.
