Reviews and visitor comments

"I had a great time at Dromineer, not least because of the spectacular setting and the interest of all those involved in what they are doing. But I also spent time driving around with Tom McCarthy, talking so much that we got literally lost. What else are literary festivals for, I ask myself?"
