Major travel writers conference taking place in Kilkenny

Associate Editor of National Geographic Traveller, George Stone is just one of those attending.

Day two of a four-day major travel conference is getting underway in Kilkenny today.

Top writers from the US, including the Associate Editor of National Geographic Traveller, George Stone have gathered in the Lyrath Hotel.

The Travel Classics International Writers’ conference is regarded by many as the one of the headline events for travel writers and editors.

Ciara Sugrue of Fáilte Ireland says they had to fight hard to host it in Ireland and it’s a major coup for Kilkenny.
