Irish Writer's Retreat: Leitrim

Luxury remote retreat in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Perched on a mountain top overlooking Lough Allen, this romantic getaway offers so very much. Surrounded by the breathtaking Iron mountains this unspoilt part of the Irish countryside remains unchanged for centuries, and can be truly appreciated when staying at the Writers Retreat.

Originally a schoolhouse, constructed at the turn of the century, the property has been rescued, restored and reinvented to offer guests a memorable and luxurious getaway. Passive house standards were embraced in transforming this piece of local history into 21st century luxury living.

Whether you’re starting a new creative project, working on an old one, or finishing up a business proposal, a writing retreat at the Old School House will help you finish it.

You’ll be surprised at how much you get done when you retreat from the demands of everyday life and spend time in solitude to focus entirely on your work.

The School House offers a number of amenities to allow for a productive and enjoyable visit; we also provide a tailored service upon request.

Beautiful views of the countryside and Lough Allen to inspire and excite. For those who enjoy the outdoors, there is white water rafting, inland water ways, horse back riding, nature trails and bike paths to explore.

Our Events Coordinator can reserve bookings upon request; we also provide the necessary equipment to have a safe and enjoyable time through nature's peaceful landscape.

Jan 2016
I touched down on Irish soil to be met by a chauffered service to embark upon a journey through the irish countryside towards the Wild Atlantic Way to Leitrim, the home of literary giants like Yeats and McGahern. A signal to the schoolhouse concierge readied the log burning stoves and the stocking of preselected fresh local produce and beverages for my arrival. .......I finished my screenplay in those 10 wonderful days, I will return"...Brian
