Using your left and right arms to row there and left and right brains to get the most out of your stay, follow in Synge’s footsteps and indulge yourself in a Creative Writing Workshop on the Aran Islands off Galway just before midsummer solstice madness kicks in.

 

Later in the summer at the end of July, you can feel at home at the Writing Home School in Maynooth, County Kildare, seat of much learning and push your creative boundaries through into visual art and even some song-writing. Not for the birds.

 

A fascinating tale of medieval witch hunting and death by burning at the stake takes place in Kilkenny mid June. Bring your own broom.

 

Extending the Joyce-ean reach beyond the pale, the Bruff-onians in Limerick aim to celebrate the work of Mr Joyce, during the Bloomsday celebrations this June.

 

With story telling drawing you in and unwinding through words, yoga and music, express your inner self in a well of creative bliss on Clare island in Mayo this July.

 

If its Monaghan, its got to be, yes , Patrick Kavanagh. And no better location than Inniskeen itself to host a brand new festival as part of the Gathering from mid June for a month of Sundays and all other days

 

In the most appropriate settings of a medieval castle you can let your Yeats-ian self run amuck for a few days this August in County Sligo. Learn how to write your own memoir. You know there’s a book in there somewhere.

 

Most appropriately on the centennial of the 1913 Lockout, the Wexford based Byrne/Perry summer school will be held on this theme at the end of June.

 

And  if you are up for the challenge of another language, you can start right back at your a-b-c’s in Glencolmcille’s Irish language summer school in Donegal throughout the summer months.

 

Feast your literary self at the Dalkey Book Festival mid June in Dublin with a line up that features Kevin Barry, Carl Bernstein, Eoin Colfer, Roddy Doyle, Anne Enright, Robert Fisk, Selina Guinness, Declan Kiberd,  Frank McGuinness, Pauline McLynn, Edna O’Brien, Colm O’Regan- and many more

 

If you wish to try again, fail again, fail better, join in with the Trinity Beckett crowd this August to savour the experience in Beckett’s Dublin alma mater
