Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas

 10th-12th June 2016

My summer would not be complete without my annual excursion to Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas. This unique festival is set in the beautiful location of Borris House in County Carlow. Borris promises a weekend of stimulating dialogue with intriguing minds from all over the world and it does not disappoint. There were writers, artists, film makers, political commentators, musicians and architects. Here are some of my highlights from the weekend.
