The weekend of 14th and 15th June 2014 will bring 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.


The 2014 speaker list will include plenty of new faces (Mariella Frostrup, Deborah Levy, Eimear McBride, Damien Barr, Ruth Padel, Cathy Davey, Roy Foster, Audrey Magee, Gerard Byrne, Dylan Haskins, Patrick McGrath, Sebastian Barry, Louis de Bernieres, Hugo Hamilton, John Boorman, Kevin Myers, Jason McCue) and re-visits of some guests from previous years (William Dalrymple, Donal Ryan, Giles Duley, Olivia O’Leary, John Banville, Stephen Frears). Full programme will be announced in the coming days. A strictly limited number of weekend, Saturday and Sunday tickets are now on sale – check out Latest News for booking details.


We are very proud to have welcomed great minds such as Dorothy Cross, Fintan O’Toole, Martin Amis, PJ Harvey, Michael Craig Martin, Selina Hastings, Don McCullin, Anne Enright, Neil Jordan, Ben Okri, Paul Murray, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Lenny Abrahamson, Mike Scott, AC Grayling, Lionel Shriver, Craig Brown, and Colm Toibin to Borris Village for a weekend in the past two years – and we think we are on course for a truly spectacular June 2014.
