I watched this a few years ago, maybe in 2014 or so, on a DVD I got from the library (I plan to comb through my history there, but I checkout a lot of material from the library, so it's tricky). The main protagonist is a male writer, I think maybe a poet, whose wife died prior to the start of the story. There was a situation somewhere early in the film where he was buttonholed by a man in a pub who "wanted to show him something he'd written". A group of writers are in town — I don't remember if it was a convention or a competition, but I remember it being something formal — and I think he volunteered to help them around. One of the visiting writers is a woman, and they start falling for each other, culminating in sleeping together.
The fantasy aspect is that he might be haunted by his wife's ghost, although it's ambiguous enough that he might just be hallucinating from guilt. I remember a scene where he opened up a closet and is dragged down by hands reaching out from the bottom (he wakes up a bit later, and figures it for a bad dream) and near the end of the movie, he walks into his bedroom, sits down on the bed, and his wife (naked, I think) is suddenly sitting on the other side of the bed and they have a conversation about moving on, I think related to him starting up a romance with the visiting writer, and suddenly his wife is gone. And I think after that, the film ended.
Given the thick accents (very inconvenient because the DVD had no subtitles or close-captioning), I'm pretty sure it was filmed in Ireland with natives. The visiting writer, though, was not from there, might have been from the United States or the England. I have this vague impression that the protagonist might have had adult children who he calls at one point, but I don't remember any details.
