Your retreat begins once you step on board one of the ferries that will take you to Bere Island. Bere Island Ferries departs from Castletownbere and lands in the West End of the Island at Oilean na gCaorach. Murphy’s Ferry Service leaves from the Pontoon and lands at the Village at the East End of the island.  You can check the ferry schedules here:  and

You will be picked up from the ferry on arrival and brought to your accommodation. Take a little time to settle in and find your bearings and soon you will begin your writing journey.

You arrive at the Heritage Centre for a meet and greet with your fellow writers and award winning author Adam Wyeth. Have a relaxed chat and some refreshments while you listen to an introduction to the island itself and the plan for your next three days.
