Write By the Sea is a boutique literary festival set in the attractive fishing village of Kilmore Quay, Co Wexford.

Join us for a weekend of readings, conversations, workshops and interviews with some of our most celebrated writers.

We keep the event small and intimate with plenty of opportunities to mingle, not just with your fellow attendees, but with many of the writers and speakers too.

A beautiful fresh seafood lunch, sourced by our local fishing boats, is served each day and is included in the ticket price. Non-fish-eaters, Vegans and Vegetarians are catered for with pleasure.

Come spend a day or the whole weekend with us and feed your mind, your body and your soul.
