• Irish Writer’s Retreat

    "...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

Welcome to The Old Schoolhouse

Moneenatieve National School, Co. Leitrim, Ireland.
Perched on a mountain top overlooking Lough Allen, surrounded by the breathtaking Iron mountains allowing this unspoilt part of the Irish country side, unchanged for centuries, to be truly appreciated. This schoolhouse, constructed at the turn of the century, was falling to ruin when rescued, restored and reinvented. Passive house standards were embraced in transforming this piece of local history into 21st century luxury living.

Located in the Beautiful Irish Countryside
