A select number of stylish tent structures (bell tents, yurts, and vintage caravans) for those wishing to stay amongst it all

About this event

The owners of Borris House Estate have been kind enough to allow a small number of stylish tent structures (bell tents, yurts, teepees) into their private garden and orchard, right beside the festival. These wonderful, roomy spaces come with bed, double mattress, fresh bed linen and fluffy pillows, duvet, blankets, and some other surprises for the guests who decide to take the plunge.

The area is quiet at night. Hot showers and lavatories are right there. We will do our very best to make sure you have a very comfortable stay with us, and that you can make the most of the festival at night, as well as the nearby pubs and the exceptionally good Step House Hotel restaurant at the end of the drive. We also serve coffee in the morning, and our food stalls are generally up and going for late breakfast too.

The cost of a Bell Tent is €450 for 2 nights, and sleeps two in great comfort.

The cost of a 16ft diameter Yurt is €750 for 2 nights (3 if you want), and can sleep a double and two singles. Email us at info@festivalofwritingandideas.com if you want one of these.

The cost of a charmingly restored caravan is €575 for 2 nights, and can sleep a couple and a single. Email us at info@festivalofwritingandideas.com if you want one of these.

A member of our team will be there to greet you and show you where everything is.

Organiser Borris Festival of Writing & Ideas

Organiser of 2021 Camping in style

The postponed ninth edition of The Festival of Writing & Ideas will take place September 18th to 20th 2020, bringing together some of the most intriguing international minds – novelists, journalists, film-makers, poets, theatre directors, war correspondents, biographers, artists and political commentators – for a weekend of stimulating dialogue and discussion. 

Borris Festival has become known for its languid and laid-back feel, and for its extraordinary line up of speakers.

“One of the friendliest, most stimulating literary festivals in the world.” – Ian McEwan

“Manages to retain all the charm of a smaller gathering where people are here because they fancy it, not because they are selling a book.” – Mariella Frostrup 

Selected as Best Literary Festival in the World 2019 by The Telegraph and Net-a-Porter
