Weekend Curators: Caroline O'Donoghue's Literary Cork

A luxurious literary weekend stay curated by author Caroline O'Donoghue



Caroline O’Donoghue is a London based author, podcaster and screenwriter, but born and bred in Cork - a fact that she thought was deeply unimportant until she moved to London.
Caroline says: After a few years away, I found that everything I wrote was strongly informed by growing up in Cork city. I've developed this weekend offer to give you the chance to experience the city in which I feel deeply inspired by.
