The Festival

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

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.

Come spend a day or the whole weekend at the friendliest festival in Ireland. Discover new writers and see your old favourites in a casual and intimate setting. Dazzling interviews, inspiring stories, engaging workshops and outstanding performances – there’s something for everyone.
