The Moth Retreat for Artists and Writers

The Moth is delighted to present its newly refurbished retreat for writers and artists alike, which you can read about in the Homes & Property section of the Irish Times

The Moth retreat is situated along a beautiful country lane in Ireland (3 kilometres from the local village of Milltown and 19 kilometres from Cavan Town) and surrounded by some of the county’s famed 365 lakes. Just a few kilometres away is Drumlane Abbey, founded by Saint Colmcille in the sixth century. The county also hosts the source of the River Shannon and has its own Burren, with numerous geological sites recognised by UNESCO.
