2024 will mark the twelfth edition of Borris House Festival of Writing & Ideas. We are proud to have weathered the last few years as now. We can bring you another intimate and invigorating weekend in a place as beautiful as Borris, Co Carlow. The Borris House Festival of Writing and Ideas has become known for its languid and laid-back feel – selected as Best Literary Festival in the World 2019 by The Telegraph and Net-a-Porter.
Our aspiration is simply that ideas captured in writing of all kinds are exchanged. In this era of anger and misinformation, our speakers will help us navigate these uncertain times throughout the day. Such speakers at the event include the likes of celebrated historians, activists, musicians, journalists, environmentalists and literary minds.
