I've never been to Cill Rialaig, run by Noelle Campbell Sharpe on the Iveragh peninsula in Co Kerry. It seems more aimed at visual artists but it's said to welcome writers too. I don't know any who have been there though.
This is to publicise a 6 month residency, so no use for writers with full time jobs or families.
6 MONTH WRITERS RESIDENCY PROGRAMME AT THE CILL RIALAIG RETREAT
OCTOBER 2009 – MARCH 2010
Over 2,000 artists, mainly visual, have enjoyed residencies at the Cill Rialaig Retreat on remote Bolus Head, near Ballinskelligs.
Without a website the project has attracted over 150,000 applications for residencies.
Writers who have enjoyed the experience include Jane Urquhart (Canada), Katherine McNamara (USA), Jane Considine (Ireland), Emer Martin (Ireland), Eddie Lenihan (Ireland), Sue Hubbard (UK, novelist and poet).
Come and have a glass of wine and hear what writer and artist Emer Martin got from the Cill Rialaig Experience!!!
