Each year The Borris House Festival of Writing & Ideas gathers together fiction writers, historians, journalists, broadcasters, filmmakers, photographers, war correspondents and musicians for a riveting weekend of dialogue and discussion. Over 60 speakers will descend on the idyllic village of Borris, County Carlow for a three-day gathering designed to inspire.
