Secrets of W B Yeats Landscape

Secrets of W B Yeats Landscape

The W B Yeats Landscape surrounds the town of Gort in the Burren Lowlands in County Galway. The limestone region hosts a mysterious river that keeps disappearing and reappearing. There are some wonderful rare geological formations to explore as well as some ancient holy sites. We visit a deep river cave and a series of collapsed caves in ethereal woodland. This is a locally alleged site of Yeats’ muse as he frequented the spot and picnicked here with his benefactor Lady Gregory. Here you can hear the healing sounds of the drum and gong played to add to the atmosphere and help you merge with the wonders of nature. A Mysterious River Further up a magical tiny road that follows the river Beagh, we stop at hidden sites such as a holy well and a church that has been there since at least the ninth century. This church was probably part of a longer pilgrimage route to Holy Island on Lough Derg. We can dowse the water and energy lines too. Next along the road is a delightful thatched cottage whose owner invites you for tea and great home baked goods in her sheltered courtyard. Finally we can explore and learn the sad history of a Mass rock and “bullaun” set in a stone circle close to an old settlement long gone. A Writer’s Inspiration If you want to extend this tour to a full day you can have lunch in Coole Park, former estate of Lady Gregory and walk through the dry turlough in Summer to the adjacent native woodland of Garrylands. This all the old haunt of Yeats and so...

Spiritual tour of The Burren: backbone of the Burren, Wild Atlantic Way Ireland

Explore the true nature of the Burren through a  Burren spiritual tour with local author Jackie Queally. The Burren lies in County Clare and County Galway. The Burren is a wild region traversed by minor, twisting roads that lead nowhere in particular! It helps to journey with a guide if your time is limited. In order to get a true flavour of the Burren we select a range of experiences and sites for you, depending on where you are staying and your particular interests. Jackie can come to meet you at your accommodation and accompany you on the tour, or meet at the normal pick up points of Kinvara or Gort. Price will vary slightly according to distances involved. Contact Earthwise in the first instance. I'm still reflecting on all the inspirations you left me with. It's days after that I begin to realize you're doing really special work. Climbing up and down the rocks with you was probably the most special experience I had in Ireland. Melissa Huang San Francisco translator/editor Thanks again for everything we enjoyed the trip and certainly had some great laughs. Our favorite place there was the farmer’s land and the fairy circle in the Burren.
