Poets in Ireland

Join Irish poets Sean Lysaght and Nessa O’Mahony for six days of poetry and discovery in the West of Ireland. Limited to 12 poets, morning workshops will take place in the intimate setting of Holly Hill, a private seaside residence outside of Westport, in County Mayo. Your itinerary includes excursions to Ballycroy National Park and the Museum of Country Life, with plenty of free time to write, enjoy a meal in town, and take in the craic at one of Westport’s many pubs. A public poetry reading featuring the instructors and workshop participants rounds out your Ireland adventure!

Hosted by Seattle poets T. Clear and Mary Eliza Crane.
