Story House Ireland

This sounds interesting, residential writing courses in Ireland with great writers and tutors inspired by the Arvon Foundation.

The Story House Ireland is a not-for-profit residential writing centre, based in Waterford and inspired by The Arvon Foundation. It is built on a belief in the importance of writing as a vital part of the creative arts and aims to provide real support for developing writers of all ages and backgrounds. As it grows it will provide a focus for the development of a community of writers, teaching opportunities for professional writers, and also work to “ensure anyone can benefit from the transformative power of writing”. Writing can change your life.

Here are the details of the inaugural course. I wouldn't be surprised if this sells well abroad.
