Workshop at Charleville Castle
Fortis ~ Cadere ~ Cedere ~ Non ~ Portis
Charleville Castle which grew from paper doodles in early 1798 to grandiose plans by the end of that very eventful year in Ireland. Will be just one of our retreat workshop locations. It was built by Charles William Bury, Earl of Charleville and was designed by Francis Johnston, one of the leading architects of the day. Charleville Castle is said to be the finest example of gothic-revival architecture in the country. This is a veritable gothic castle of grand proportions. It owes its “Tin Soldier Fortress” look to the celebration of victory over the third French revolutionary expedition to Ireland. Tour the land and find places to embrace your writing journey.
