The Molly Keane Writers Retreat is located in the village of Ardmore in County Waterford. It was the writer Molly Keane’s residence, the place where she lived from 1950 up until her death in 1996. Her daughter made the home available for writers.
The house is a peaceful, secluded and comfortable family home with spectacular views over the bay, distant cliffs and vast sandy beaches only a 10 minute walk away. The house sleeps 9 easily and 11 using folding and sofa beds.
It is very comfortable, but may be unsuited to anyone who does not appreciate old things or those who have difficulties with stairs as a flight of steps leads up to the road.

There’s certainly something remarkable about the Molly Keane house. It presents a tranquil environment for writers and artists who need some space and who want to be surrounded by beautiful, picturesque environments, in order for them to clear their and and complete their pieces.
The venue accommodates events like workshops, film talks, and the Molly Keane Writers Week. It also allows anyone to rent the venue for their own writing groups.
